More than 62 percent of women employees are forced to consider leaving their jobs in women’s shops in Riyadh owing to the inconvenient working hours. This startling revelation was made when the preliminary results of a survey conducted by the Survey Center were announced recently.

While the detailed results of the survey are expected to be revealed soon, initial findings indicate that 70 percent of the women do not suffer from any harassment at the workplace.

More than 79 percent believe that that the current salary is not commensurate with the long hours of work. The salaries of the study sample revealed that 95 percent of the women earned about SR5,000 or less, 41.3 percent earned SR3,000 or less and 53.7 percent earned between SR3,000 and SR5,000.

The study also concluded a number of other statistical results that will help official authorities in making strategic decisions regarding feminization of shops.
