The H1N1 virus is also known as the Swine flu. It affects almost 20% of the U.S. citizens. Since this disease can be transferred from one person to another, when employees become victims of swine flu, there is a great possibility that they will not report to their workplace because the fear that other employees would be affected. Since there are some companies that do not encourage paid sick day off, when the employee stays home, he may be subtracted from the employees leaving him jobless.  This is a situation that encourages unemployment rate.

There is a great tendency that when the employment rate declines, there will also be a decline in the labor force participation. Moreover, most of the jobless workers are discouraged and they opt to leave the labor force (Fujita, 2014). From 1950s, men’s labor force participation rate has been decreasing. However, for the last few decades, there has been a rise in working women. There was an explosion of the labor force participation of women from about 34% in 1950 to the women’s labor force participation peak that is 60% in late 1999. From that time, the participation rate for women has been decreasing. However, when there is an increase in labor force participation of women, the labor force participation of women will decrease as a result of job search’s demoralization.
