    New Delhi, Jun 24: More than
    half of the country's overall
    workforce is self-employed,
    even as female employees
    receive less remuneration than
    their male counterparts for doing similar jobs, as per the
    data of a government survey
    released Friday. While 51 percent of the
    country's total workforce are
    self-employed, only around
    15.6 percent are 'regular wage/
    salaried' employees and 33.5
    percent are casual labours, the key indicators from a survey
    the National Sample Survey
    Office (NSSO) revealed.

    I think this is very probably true! Its very hard to get Labour these days, everyone is going of and starting something by themselves!
