Resumen

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.

    Cambios en la estructura laboral en Europa durante la gran recesión - Resumen ejecutivo

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    El presente informe describe el impacto de la recesión en el empleo en la UE-27, identifica los cambios registrados en los niveles de empleo entre el segundo trimestre de 2008 y el segundo trimestre de 2010 e indica el modo en que tales cambios se distribuyeron por todo el espectro salarial. Revela que el empleo siguió creciendo en el ámbito de los puestos de trabajo de mayor remuneración, sobre todo en los servicios intensivos en conocimiento y en los servicios comerciales. Mientras tanto, las pérdidas en los empleos de remuneración media en la construcción y la fabricación dieron lugar a una reducción del empleo en la parte media del espectro salarial. Se perdieron más puestos de trabajos masculinos que femeninos y los trabajadores de edad avanzada fueron los mayores beneficiarios de la creación de empleo. Aunque el trabajo a tiempo parcial ha experimentado un crecimiento en todo el espectro salarial, la mayoría del crecimiento del empleo desde 2009 se ha concentrado en el ámbito de los puestos de trabajo temporales (de baja remuneración).
