In contrast to both the social-democratic and the liberal welfare state regimes, employment rates in the social-capitalist welfare states have actually fallen. From the 1970s to the mid-1980s social capitalism managed labour-market problems via supply reductions (Esping-Andersen 1996b). The policy was directed towards exit options rather than towards an 20 BUSSEMAKER AND VAN KERSBERGEN increase of labour-market entrance. Such a policy has not only affected older male workers, who have been encouraged to retire early, but has also had substantial consequences for female workers, who have been discouraged from entering the labour market or have been encouraged to enter only in part-time jobs.
The insider–outsider problem and the labour-reduction route are partly endogenous to the social-capitalist welfare state, particularly to the manner in which social-security arrangements and social services either presuppose each other or conﬂict. It is worth quoting Esping-Andersen's view on the exit strategy: The roots of this strategy lie in the continental European welfare states' combination of highly (if not overly) developed social insurance (inordinately biased towards pensions) and underdeveloped social services.
Social systems that are broadly similar in their emphasis on the breadwinner model and the privileging of the family nevertheless vary substantially in the treatment of single mothers—for example, in the balancing of paid work and care, and in the public–private mix of ﬁnancial assistance. While traditionally lone-parent families were widows, usually well protected by social security, they are now mainly divorced or never-married women. Only in Italy are the majority of lone mothers still widows.
