EU Sources - Survey on working conditions - November 30, 2016

In the 6th European Working Conditions Survey, Eurofound presents the results of interviews with 44,000 workers across Europe. Both employees and self-employed were interviewed. They were asked about their employment conditions, working hours, exposure to risks, work organisation, skills use and autonomy, work–life balance, health and well-being. Overall, structural inequalities and differences in terms of gender, employment status and occupation are still significant. The section on earnings reveals that most workers are concentrated at the lower end of the income distribution, with very few at the upper end. The income of men is substantially higher than that of women, partly due to differences in working hours
