Bangladeshi and Pakistani women are finally surging into the British labour market

Manager Top Contributor

Bangladeshi and Pakistani women are often expected to do a lot of cleaning, cooking and taking care of children, which leaves little time for a job. According to the Labour Force Survey, though, the number trying to find work is increasing surprisingly fast in Britain http://econ.st/TgFHvT

    Yes, it's the trend, and not only the migrants but more and more Bangladeshi women are on the move into the labour market, and become part of the drivers of the Bangladesh economy.

    Both by the form and content, Muhammad Abbas Khan's remark is disrespectful towards women. That is one reason why Pakistan is rated 3rd most dangerous country for women in the world today, after Congo and Afghanistan, according to a 2012 global survey. @Mr. Khan, please be respectful towards women. And, I can't help but say that you perhaps need some help from an editor / mentor to correct your language and the mindset, at the outset, please.
