Обзор

Being in work greatly reduces the risk of poverty. Nevertheless, in the European Union, 8% of the employed population fell into the category of ‘working poor’ in 2007, in the sense of having an income below 60% of the national average. The proportion varies markedly across countries and social groups. In most countries, the issue of working poor is not a policy priority of either the government or the social partners, although it can be included in general policies to combat poverty and social exclusion. Although there is little evidence to prove it to date, the working poor are likely to have been particularly affected by the current economic recession.

    Трудовата бедност в Европа - Резюме

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    По принцип се приема, че когато човек има работа, рискът от бедност значително намалява. Въпреки това в Европейския съюз 8% от работещото население през 2007 г. попадат в категорията „бедни работещи хора“ - получават доход под 60% от средния за държавата. Съотношението варира значително за различните държави и социални групи. В повечето страни въпросът за бедните работещи хора не е политически приоритет нито за правителството, нито за социалните партньори, въпреки че често е включван в общите политики за борба с бедността и социалното изключване.
