Resumen

In 2016, somewhat later than in other developed economies, the EU recovered all the net employment losses sustained since the global financial crisis. Employment growth since 2013 has been only modestly skewed towards well-paid jobs; growth has been robust in low-paid and mid-paid jobs too. Newer jobs are increasingly likely to be full time rather than part time. Part 1 of this sixth annual European Jobs Monitor report takes a detailed look at shifts in employment at Member State and EU levels from 2011 Q2 to 2016 Q2. Part 2 examines the role that occupations play in structuring European wage inequality. It finds that occupations have their own effect on wage inequality as well as mediating other factors such as human capital and social class. It also finds that occupational dynamics did not drive wage inequality developments in the last decade, a period of intense structural change in European labour markets.

    Cambios en el empleo y desigualdad salarial Observatorio Europeo del Empleo 2017

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    En 2016, algo más tarde que en otras economías desarrolladas, la UE recuperó todas las pérdidas netas de empleo acumuladas desde la crisis financiera mundial. El crecimiento del empleo desde 2013 se ha inclinado solo ligeramente hacia los puestos de trabajo de remuneración elevada; también se ha producido un sólido incremento de los puestos de trabajo de remuneración baja e intermedia. Cada vez resulta más probable que los puestos de trabajo más nuevos sean a tiempo completo, y no a tiempo parcial. En la parte 1 de este sexto informe anual del Observatorio Europeo del Empleo se analizan con detenimiento los cambios en el empleo en cada Estado miembro, y en el conjunto de la EU, desde el 2t de 2011, al 2t de 2016. En la parte 2 se examina el papel que desempeñan las ocupaciones en la estructuración de la desigualdad salarial europea. Se observa que las ocupaciones ejercen su efecto propio en la desigualdad salarial, y que condicionan otros factores como el capital humano y la clase social. Se determina asimismo que la dinámica ocupacional no ha impulsado la evolución de la desigualdad salarial en la última década, un período de intensa transformación estructural en los mercados laborales europeos.

  • European Jobs Monitor

    This series brings together publications and other outputs of the European Jobs Monitor (EJM), which tracks structural change in European labour markets. The EJM analyses shifts in the employment structure in the EU in terms of occupation and sector and gives a qualitative assessment of these shifts using various proxies of job quality – wages, skill-levels, etc.
