Why are women employed in low paid work?


SOLUTION
The women employed in low paid work because of the following reasons:
  1. A majority of women in the country are less educated than men, thus they are primarily working as unskilled labor and thus get fewer wages.
  2. They mainly work in the unorganized sector where they get low wages.
  3. Since most of the women are uneducated, they are unaware of their rights and about minimum wages.
  4. They are believed physically inferior to men thus believed to do less work, thus they are paid less.
