EMPLOYABILITY AMONG YOUNG WOMEN: DISCRIMNATION, VILATION OF RIGHTS OR ERROR? AN ANALYSIS OF THE LABOR MARKET FOR YOUNG WOMEN FROM ROMANIA

PhD Student Stefania Cristina Stanciu

ABSTRACT

Employability among young women raises many problems on the laboUr market for these - from their employment discrimination, the wage inequality, to the demands not only of the necessary knowledge and abilities but also of the physical aspect. The labour market in this area has many hidden hindrances behind false job advertisements and companies with slogans that sound nice and motivating. This target group, made up of young women, students, or fresh graduates of postgraduate and higher education, is the target of some defective labour market mechanisms. These mechanisms should operate in accordance with legal rules, with their rights, without discrimination for any reason.
Why is not that the case? Because the intervention levers of the state are not adapted to the increasingly developed problems in this field, the regulatory mechanisms of public institutions with skills in the field are insufficient for such a large market and are not strictly focused on this target group,or at least on the major target group - women able to work and control levers for the private environment are aimed at solving other issues in this field or in the public sector. These include combating corruption, tax evasion, increasing collaboration with the private sector to reduce youth unemployment, implementing public programs and policies to boost youth entrepreneurship, but not just.
The present paper aims to analyze the problems among young women in employment when they enter the labour market and to identify the reasons behind them. Also, the evaluation of job offers for young women and the gaps in them are another objective of the paper.
As a research method, I will consider the sociological survey based on the questionnaire, the semi-structured interview, an analysis of the offers and working conditions for young women and the analysis of the legislation in the field.
