"Part-time participation among married women who work in the market" Dr. Tong Zeng
This paper explores how age influences the married women's decision to choose part-time jobs. For marred women, especially young married women with significant household responsibilities, part-time employment provides an important way for joining in the labor market and pursuing career and occupational goals. The empirical results show that the number of children, the presence of children under six years old and the husband's wage rate increase the married woman's decision to work part-time
Dr Tong Zeng got her PhD in Dec 2011 from LSU in Economics.
