This discussion paper, by authors Marzia Fontana (a Better Work Visiting Scholar in 2012) and Andrea Silberman, looks at baseline worker surveys for Vietnam from a gender perspective. Findings show marked differences between male and female workers, including:
♦ Significant occupational segmentation by gender.
♦ Women workers were less likely to be promoted or to receive training than men workers, despite the fact that women, on average, had been employed at the same factory longer.
♦ A larger number of men workers appeared to enjoy good health.
♦ Women workers reported having less free time than men workers.
