Because women are under-represented in growing industries? Because it may indicate that women are being discriminated against when it come to dismissals?
A Ministry of Women's Affairs study found women accounted for 70 per cent of job losses in the city. Women made up 90 per cent of the 12,600 jobs lost in the retail and accommodation industries.

Ahaha no. No. It's because it's leading to a woman drought, silly.
A FUCKING WOMAN DROUGHT.
Oh, but wait, there's more. Not only are there less women for men to choose from, the quality of them has diminished, because women from university age to thirties are the first to leave. Not only that, "the girls stopped making as much effort with their appearance. They obviously didn't have to try as hard."
So nice to know we've got our priorities sorted.
