Occupational mobility in Europe

PDF version Printer-friendly version
This research aimed at investigating how the high level of observed job mobility relates to social stratification and social class. An obvious assumption would be that intensifying employment mobility has weakened social inequalities across a wide range of life prospects, and social class has become increasingly less meaningful for people in their daily lives. It was with this in mind that the main research question was developed, thus asking whether the increase of job mobility has led to a growing class mobility as well. Or perhaps class remains, despite the gradual disappearance of the ‘job for life’ phenomenon.
