Family Migration and Female Employment: The Problem of Underemployment among Migrant Married Women.
Morrison, Donna Ruane; Lichter, Daniel T.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n1 p161-72 Feb 1988
Examined effects of geographic mobility on changes in underemployment among married and single women. Results reinforce findings from previous studies by showing that migration contributed to labor force nonparticipation and unemployment among married women. Migration was also linked to involuntary part-time employment and low pay, and negatively affected employment adequacy among single women. (Author/NB)
