EU sources-Standard employment under pressure -May 19, 2015

Report on which policy combinations are most effective in delivering high employment and balanced incomes.

The World Employment and Social Outlook of the ILO explores the inter-connected nature of macroeconomic policies on the one hand, and employment and social outcomes on the other. The report analyses which policy combinations are most effective in delivering high employment and balanced incomes. The publication reveals a shift away from the standard employment model, in which workers earn wages and salaries in a dependent employment relationship vis-à-vis their employers, have stable jobs and work full time. In advanced economies, the standard employment model is less and less dominant, whilst the proportion of value added going to wages declines over time, leading to lower wage shares and higher income inequality.
