• The labor market in England:

    In England, in January 2014 , there are 36,300,000 people between 16 and 64 years according to the government.

    Of these 36.3 million , it counted 25.7 million people who work and 2.1 million jobseekers.


    Three categories are used to classify people on working age :

    - English mother tongue

    - Residents fluent in English

    - Residents who speak a little bit or not English .



    Approximately 86 and 88% of English residents or graduates are proficient in the language .

    - 53 and 56 % have the equivalent of a bachelor + 1 , 2 or 3

    - 30 and 35% have a master's degree or higher.

    For residents who don’t speak English, only 54% have a degree .


                Jobs :

    The government statistics are:

    - For English "native" : 71.9 % are working against 7.2 % who are unemployed. For this asset class , the most common occupations are office working or technical achievements.

    - For residents fluent in the language of Shakespeare : the United Kingdom identifies 65.4 % of employees and 9.5 % of job seekers . Most of them are working in elementary jobs (cleaning, plumbing, etc ...) and in the office.

    - For people who do not speak English, 12.3 % are unemployed, and only 48.3 % have a job. It is generally elementary jobs or service (delivery , plumbing, etc ...).


    All these figures are rather positive for England because indeed, as can be seen in the graph below, this is proof that the government has succeeded in reversing the trend after the 2008 crisis .

    However, during the study the government realizes that there is a real difference between the employment of men and women. Indeed, for English mother tongue is found that 75.5% of men were employed against 68.3% of women.

    But that is not going to be as arranging for residents fluent in English because the difference is 14%.

    However, it is for residents who do not speak the language that the figures are more alarming. Indeed, the percentage of employed men is twice as high as in women.



    Do English people need also, such as France and the United States, to review the position of women in the workplace?
