EU sources -Sector comparison of working conditions -February 10, 2014

Eurofound has produced a report that focuses on working conditions and job quality across sectors in Europe. The report pinpoints trends in areas such as working time and work-life balance, work organisation, skills and training, employee representation and the psychosocial and physical environment. It identifies sectors that score particularly well or particularly poorly in terms of job quality and sheds light on differences between sectors in terms of health and well-being. The figures show that earnings vary considerably across sectors in Europe. They are highest in financial services, banking, insurance and computer programming, and lowest in agriculture and activities of households, followed by industrial cleaning, textiles and clothing, food and beverage services, retail, accommodation and other services.
