Pensions and Evolving 

The Plessey pension via GEC and then Siemens was transferred by GEC at around 85% of the male pensions as it was paid at 60 not 65
The state pension is delayed to Age 67 despite all contributions made.

The Poverty trap,  avoided by the ‘right’ marriage and dependent on no male technological unempliyment.

From no female only bank account overdraft in pre 1975 through economic changes to equality and independence with a shared family inheritance insufficient to invest.

Women’s Work and the Tie to the Home 

Q is – if ‘we’ the women dont ‘look after,  paid or unpaid’ when its necessary,  who will?
Oxfam, whose primary mission is to fight worldwide poverty, published the report in late 2016. They looked at jobs traditionally performed by women and how those jobs — often called “women’s work” — are also some of the lowest-paying available. Much of this work is carried over from tasks in the home, like cooking, cleaning, and caring for people like children or the elderly. To make matters worse, women who do these jobs have little to no hope of vertical movement to a better paying wage or position.
Low-Wage Women’s Work
The report found 22 occupations that fall into these categories:
Do You Know What You’re Worth?

Office and administrative assistance (5.0 million workers in three occupations, 77.4 percent women),

Healthcare supports (4.5 million workers in five occupations, 87.7 percent women),

Retail/cashiers (3.8 million workers, 71.6 percent women),

Food preparation and serving (3.5 million workers in five occupations, 71.4 percent women),

Early childhood care and education (3.2 million workers in three occupations, 93.3 percent women),

Beauty and personal services (1.7 million workers in four occupations, 82.1 percent women),

Cleaning and housekeeping (1.7 million workers, 88.3 percent women).

Oxfam’s research found that “[t]he surprising reality is that 23.5 million people are in these jobs, 19 million of them women. Nearly 15 million people (12.3 million women) are earning under $15 an hour in these jobs.”
Economy Growing Low-Wage Jobs
While the economy has been growing, unfortunately it hasn’t been spawning the types of higher paying jobs that could bring low-wage workers some relief. Instead, low-wage jobs have been on the rise. Between 1994 and 2014, for example, Oxfam found that the number of waiters and waitresses increased by 37 percent. And they project that by 2024 “one in six of all jobs will be in low-wage women’s work; over 2 million of these jobs will have been newly created.”
