My Economics textbook and lesson notes are outlining the various trends in the labour force. And it is explaining that the rising labour force is largely due to the increase in the number of women in the labour force. And it explains several reasons why more women have entered the labour force. And most of them, I can accept. Except:
"The retail and service sectors of the Canadian economy have grown, which has provided more jobs opportunities for women, especially for part-time work."
Why just for women? Can't men also work these kinds of jobs? And don't some of them want part-time work too?
