Transcript CHAPTER VI WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO WOMEN IN INDUSTRY ? A.—The Influx of Women into Industry. The number of women, who have entered industry because of the war, and who are likely to desire to remain in it after the war, is commonly exaggerated. It is doubtful whether it reaches so much as two millions; while the total number of " gainfully occupied " women at the census of 1911 was well over 5,000,000. The census of 1911 shows us the bulk of these women taking part in domestic service, textile and other factory work, dressmaking, laundry-work, charring, "clerking,' teaching and nursing. The two million women who may have entered industry during the war have, for the most part, entered occupations already within the women's former province, e.g., clerical work, subordinate operations in the factory, serving in shops, nursing and teaching. There has, however, in many cases been considerable re-arrangement of duties (" re-grading "), and in manufacturing processes a great increase of semi-automatic machinery, so as to bring additional operations within the strength and capacity of women. But in some fields, notably in transport and in engineering work, essential to the output of munitions, and in the leather trades, women have come in large numbers into occupations formerly regarded as exclusively men's. Generally speaking, women taken on during the war by private employers, as well as by the Government, are being paid wages considerably less than are being paid to men for nearly similar work. B.—The Conditions Produced by Demobilisation. So long as the war continues all the women available can be absorbed as well as all the men. When the war ends ? 1. In a majority of cases where women have been taken on during the war, there is no clear understanding as to " whose job it is" when the men return.
