Work

Question
1 Few people work on what they really enjoy; most work to cover monthly expenses.
2 A well paid job is more important than family.
3 Work is the only way to survive, thus, informal markets and factories have rapidly developed.
4 Profession, salary and social status are strongly linked, with few opportunities to overcome set patterns.
5 Current working conditions have generated previously unseen creativity and persistence.
6 Inequality between men and women still exists in the workplace at all levels, especially management. However, women are making headway in new fields.
