Economy[edit] General[edit] The economy of Aube
Aube
has focused on the textile industry since the 19th century. This sector is now in crisis due to the department being in an area of real economic change. In 2007, the departmental workforce totalled 139,083 with 121,966 persons in employment and 17,117 people unemployed. Men accounted for nearly 53% of the active population and women 47%.[22] The Aube
Aube
department has a high rate of feminization in employment. Nearly half of people with active jobs (46% in 2007) are women. The main areas affected by the feminization are trade, transport, textiles, utilities, education, and health. Women are slightly more affected than men by unemployment (54.8% of the unemployed in 2007). This is mainly due to layoffs in the textile sector. Employment by sector[edit]
