Women workers are fading from the labor market in increasing numbers, reported OWI last week. This drift back home is due to production cutbacks and layoffs; many of the women discharged do not apply for other available jobs. The chief reasons:
¶The new job may not offer the same high rate of pay as the old one, or may require too much physical strength.
¶A woman trained for a specific war job may not fit into other work.
¶If the first job was taken for patriotic reasons, the woman may feel she has done her share in the war.
