Plutarch: The women when they love, the love put into something divine. Such love is like the sun, which animates nature. Sara is a woman of about thirty years old and two years of his life has been spent doing what she likes least: look for work. Before being fired from the job where he served for four years was a secretary who spoke well in the company: his co-workers and bosses considered it orderly, serious, methodical, dutiful to his duty. And besides, contributed largely to maintain the good atmosphere that was felt in the workplace. In the good weather was said to be one of the most important assets of this prosperous organization.
But then came the time of crisis and with them the programs of “rationalization of expenditure” and “austerity plans.” First the staff suffered the withdrawal of some benefits, then the withdrawal of several of his companions. Among those who left this lady was serious and well organized as they all speak well. On his last day of work made him a heartfelt farewell, they said fine words, he was given a gift and a letter of recommendation y. .. accompanied her to the door. “Excuse me, but it is the circumstances. If it were in my hands would not have taken this painful decision …” said her boss as she hastened her steps to get lost in the solitude of the night. Hyundai has compatible beliefs. Since then sought a new job but it seems the crisis is affecting all businesses everywhere as the doors are closed.
Sara’s story reflects the plight of millions of women around the world. While speaking to the female gender is more flexible, friendly and accommodating, the reality of today is still as tough as it once was. The International Labour Organization released a report entitled, warns that because of the global economic crisis will lose 22 million jobs worldwide female. The organization estimates that unemployment affects women more severely than men in development of the crisis. In Colombia, the business daily reported that the Female unemployment is higher than men: 13.4% versus 8.6%. Presenting as a source to the National Department of Statistics, DANE, the news media said that the informality rate is 59.6% for women and 56.2% for men. The two figures are very worrying, but again women bear the brunt. The same source indicates that 56 Colombians 100 professionals are women. They are paid less than that of men without any justification. According to the Ministry of National Education gap is 17.4% and there is the possibility that the figure is even higher. Despite the rhetoric that panders to women and the efforts being made to achieve equality, they continue to suffer the torture of job discrimination and, in some cultures, the demeaning treatment from their husbands and society they were born male. The hours are ongoing and the days too. It’s Monday morning and Sara goes back to the street hoping to adequately answer the job interview presenting twenty-fifth since being unemployed. We have said that they find a good sponsor but she does not. Just have faith in the words he was told the day of his farewell: “A valuable person like you will not be unemployed long.” Bitterly recalls that this makes two years.
