Research background: The disadvantaged position of women in the labor market is a well-known fact. However, there are also differences between women themselves, which put certain groups in an even more disadvantaged position compared to others. Women entered the paid workforce after centuries of “quiet revolution” (McManus and Johnson, 2020) and still they remain more likely to be in insecure employment, work varying hours or short hours, and dominate in particular sectors (Wilson, 2019).
Purpose of the article: Our study aimed at the analysis of the link between structure of family (household) Slovak woman live in and their attitudes towards its impact on their employment.
Methods: The Chi-square statistic as a non-parametric test to analyze group differences was used on the attained questionnaire and a Cramer’s V as the most common strength test was used to test the association between the data after the significant Chi-square results has been obtained.
Findings & Value added: Recently, the interest of researchers worldwide is aimed at the disadvantaged position of woman on the labor market compared to man. They focus mainly on the wage gap and other inequalities, since most of these studies has quantitative character with the focus of post hoc status description. Our article aimed at the similar topic but is based on the attitudes of the women themselves and their expectations in relation to this issue. We are therefore trying to quantify qualitatively based research, which is unique both in Slovakia and abroad.
Key words: woman / family structure / Slovakia / attitudes of employment
