Labour turnover and workers' well-being in the Ethiopian manufacturing industry

Sandra Kristine Halvorsen

No wp-2021-36, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: Manufacturing industry expansion is a central part of Ethiopia's growth and transformation agenda due to its potential for accelerated economic development and large-scale job creation, in particular for women. However, the industry is experiencing extremely high labour turnover rates, which is hampering the prospects of a successful industrialization of the country. Understanding the reasons for the high turnover may give important insights into the industry workings and how factory employment affects women's economic empowerment and well-being.
