The number of precarious workers is double the figure of unemployed persons – around 250.000. In addition, a third of all sole proprietors (self-employed) are below the poverty threshold, according to the Movement for Decent Work. The trade unions added that 80% of all young people with jobs are employed with a fixed-term contract and that precarious work is always involuntary. One of the difficulties is that there are no records on people who work through temporary contracts. It is also difficult to determine the existence of different forms of precarious work. Workers often find themselves in a dependent employment relationship, or are sole proprietors with only one customer.
