EU sources -Employment and Social Developments in Europe 2013 review discussed -February 18, 2014

Policy makers, social partners and academics discussed the findings of the 2013 Employment and Social Developments in Europe review. According to the review, a significant increase in poverty among the working age population is one of the most tangible social consequences of the economic crisis. A gradual reduction of unemployment levels may not be enough to reverse this situation if wage polarisation continues, notably due to a rise in part-time work. The chapter on the gender impact of the crisis shows that fundamental disadvantages for women remain, with diminished career opportunities, lower pay and lower prospective pensions.
