An analysis of Eurofound describes the labour market situation of young people in Europe, focusing in particular on their school-to-work transition, while also monitoring their more general transition to adulthood. The report investigates the ability of young people to remain in employment against the odds during the crisis and charts their transitions from temporary to permanent contracts. In many Member States, temporary jobs are associated with lower wages and more difficult access to training opportunities and benefits (such as paid holidays, sick leave, unemployment insurance and other fringe benefits). The crisis increased the proportion of temporary employees making a transition to unemployment (from 11.6% to 18.5%). More than a quarter of temporary employees in Europe moved to permanent contracts in 2006-2007, and this transition rate slowed down slightly to around 23% during the crisis period.
