Women and Contingent Work.
Christensen, Kathleen
Social Policy, v17 n4 p15-18 Spr 1987
As the number of women workers has increased, the conditions of employment have changed. Contingent employment such as part time and temporary work allows women to accommodate their lifestyle needs and enables employers to compete in the world economy. Lack of benefits and lack of advancement opportunities are pitfalls of such arrangements. (VM)
