Resumé

This report describes the impact of the ‘great recession’ on employment and the job structure in the EU27. It finds that despite a net loss of over five million jobs between 2008–2010, employment continued to grow in top-paying jobs, largely in knowledge-intensive services and business services. Meanwhile, sharp losses in medium-paying jobs in construction and manufacturing led to a shrinking of employment in the middle of the wage spectrum. More jobs were lost to men than to women and employment levels of older workers grew while those of core-age and, in particular, younger workers declined. Part-time work expanded across the wage spectrum while levels of temporary employment began to recover quickly from 2009 onwards after having borne the brunt of the early-recession job losses. An executive summary and an Annex 8 (Quintile charts) are available - see Related content.

    Ændringer i jobstrukturen i Europa under den store recession - Resumé

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    I denne rapport beskrives det, hvordan recessionen har indvirket på beskæftigelsen i EU-27, med påvisning af ændringer i beskæftigelsesniveauet mellem andet kvartal af 2010 og andet kvartal af 2008 og visning af, hvordan disse ændringer var fordelt over lønspektret. Det fremgår, at beskæftigelsen fortsat steg i forbindelse med toplønnede job, især inden for videnintensive tjenesteydelser og forretningsservice. Imidlertid førte en nedlæggelse af mellemindkomstjob i bygge- og anlægssektoren og fremstillingssektoren til en reduktion af beskæftigelsen i midten af lønspektret. Flere mande- end kvindejob gik tabt, mens ældre arbejdstagere fik mest gavn af jobskabelsen. Mens deltidsarbejde er blevet mere udbredt over hele lønspektret, har det meste af beskæftigelsesvæksten siden 2009 været i forbindelse med (lavere lønnede) midlertidige job.
