Abstract

Production in the garment unit is depending on technology, efficiency and skills of workers. If the labors are young and more educated then they adjust with flexible production methods. The garment export units are following global standard methods of production and they provide the various production related facilities to workers. In Mumbai metropolitan region, export related units are more competitive as compare to the domestic garment units. The monthly incomes of the women workers are higher in export units. The medical allowances, maternal benefits are also more in such units. The multinomial logit regression model shows that the age of the women workers is higher and statistically significant in domestic and both type of units. The women workers work over time in the both and domestic garment units. The women workers do not have technological knowledge in domestic garment units. The decent work facilities are not provided to the women workers in domestic and both type of units. Technical up-gradation, work facilities and on job training will improve employment of women in domestic garment units in Mumbai metropolitan region.
