Austria -Part-time trap must come to an end -September 09, 2013

Reacting on a report on part-time work, the affiliates of the trade union confederation ÖGB have stated that the payment gap between fulltime and part-time workers needs to be challenged. The report indicates that part-time workers earn up to 25% less, a fact that strongly influences the pensions of these workers. With 84% women presented in the figures old age poverty becomes a serious threat for large parts of the population.
