From an economic perspective, segmentation is understood as having a number of interacting causes, including employers’ organizational requirements (internal labour market theory) and labour-use strategies (efficiency wage theory), the responses of unions (insider- outsider theory), and the impact of the household division of labour on workers’ labour supply decisions (feminist economic theory).
