Women don´t want to work they want to stay with their family. This statement is not true. The opposite way is in Germany. Many employees there want to work more and longer – if they were allowed.
The half of all part-time employees and a third of the mini-jobber would like to work longer. This was a result from a study of the institution for labour market and occupational research. The researcher makes the detection that the wish and the reality of labour time are pretty different. According to the information of IAB that belongs to the Federal Employment Agency after the German reunification the development between the man and woman changed very different. The numbers of employed man fell from 1991 to 2010 about 8% while the number of women increased at 16%. At the same time the full employment falls about 20%. The losses of full-time jobs go with strong growth in part-time – and along with mini-jobs. This is true especially for women. So in 2010 the half of all workers was women. The contingent of women in the working volume was only 43%. Normally career for woman have less promotion prospects then for men. So it is difficult for the women to make career because all the other women want the same position. Another aspect is that women get less money for the same work that a man makes. The women earn for the same job and work 21% fewer than a man.
A reason why companies are afraid to border a woman in high position is that they think that woman want to marry and get children. In that fact they have to pay them while there are not there and maybe they won’t come back only as part-time worker.
