I am not sure if I understood your question correctly, but please check the below picture and the attached pbix file.

It is for creating a new table.

New Table = 
VAR _newtable =
    ADDCOLUMNS (
        DISTINCT ( 'Table'[Employment column 1] ),
        "@A",
            CALCULATE (
                COUNTROWS ( DISTINCT ( 'Table'[Type of work] ) ),
                'Table'[Type of work] = "A"
            )
                + COUNTROWS (
                    FILTER (
                        'Table',
                        'Table'[Employment column 2] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Employment column 1] )
                            && 'Table'[Type of work] = "A"
                    )
                ),
        "@B",
            CALCULATE (
                COUNTROWS ( DISTINCT ( 'Table'[Type of work] ) ),
                'Table'[Type of work] = "B"
            )
                + COUNTROWS (
