Austria -Flexible working increased only marginally in the last three years -August 8, 2012

According to a report of Statistics Austria flexible working increased only marginally in the last three years and in 2011 those in ‘non-standard employment’, including temporary staffing, made up 31% of the total labour force. Half of the temporary agency workers in the country are aged under 35. The latest figures by the Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection (BMASK) showed that the temporary staffing industry has been suffering from declining activities for months. This continued into the month of July where unemployment among temporary staff was up by +16.8%.
