Netherlands -Flexworkers want permanent job -March 25, 2015

Nine in ten people on flexible contracts would rather have a permanent job. Four out of ten workers with a flexible contract say they have difficulty making ends meet.

Trade union research, involving 4,200 people, reveals that nine in ten people on flexible contracts would rather have a permanent job. Four out of ten workers with a flexible contract say they have difficulty making ends meet, compared with fewer than one in five people with a traditional fixed contract. Some 30% of people with ‘on call’ contracts and 40% of temps say it is hard to find an affordable place to live, compared with one in ten people in permanent jobs. The research also shows 15% of people on flexible contracts earn less than the minimum wage, which is currently €9.58 an hour.
