Austria - Chamber of Labour’s report on welfare - May 31, 2018

 The Chamber of Labour AK produces since 2016 an annual welfare study. In the current edition, AK provides the reader with an interesting chapter on the distribution of income, the wage development and inequality. Additional parts underpin the gender pay gap, labour productivity and the distribution of wealth. The report has other chapters on employment and fair and decent work, the quality of life, sustainability and economic stability.

They are critical about the indicators ‘full and decent employment’, ‘fair distribution of wealth’ and a ‘sustainable environment’.
