EU Sources -Recovery not based on the creation of full-time, permanent jobs -August 14, 2015

The 2015 annual report of the European Jobs Monitor, which looks at employment developments over 2011–2014, reveals that the actual recovery is not based on the creation of full-time, permanent jobs. Non-standard or atypical forms of employment – part-time and temporary work, as well as self-employment – are increasingly replacing the traditional, standard employment contract. The authors used wage data to generate a ranking of jobs. The jobs were assigned to job-wage quintiles, comprising five groups of jobs. When jobs are categorised by how much they pay, full-time, permanent jobs increased only in the highest pay category and declined in all others. Atypical employment, by contrast, increased in four of the five categories, with significant growth in the top and the bottom categories (of around 500,000 jobs in each).
