Resumen

Accumulating evidence indicates that large metropolitan centres are faring much better than other regions within the Member States of the EU. Such interregional inequality contributes to disenchantment with existing political systems, which in turn can weaken the social bonds that ground democratic systems. This is the context for the 2019 edition of the European Jobs Monitor, which analyses shifts in the employment structure – meaning change in the distribution of employment across occupations and sectors – of the EU regions. The analysis covers 130 regions of 9 Member States, which together account for nearly 4 out of 5 EU workers. The study finds that, while Member States are becoming more similar in their employment structures, regions within the same country are becoming more disparate. It also finds that cities have a disproportionately high share of well-paid, high-skilled services employment alongside growth in low-paid employment. The findings support continued EU regional policy assistance of regions in danger of being left behind.

    Observatorio Europeo del Empleo 2019: cambios en la estructura del empleo a nivel regional

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    La acumulación de pruebas indica que los grandes centros metropolitanos están mucho mejor situados que otras regiones de los Estados miembros de la UE. Esta desigualdad interregional contribuye al desencanto con los sistemas políticos existentes, lo que a su vez puede debilitar los lazos sociales que sostienen los sistemas democráticos. Este es el contexto de la edición 2019 del Observatorio Europeo del Empleo, que analiza los cambios en la estructura del empleo, es decir, los cambios en la distribución del empleo por profesiones y sectores, de las regiones de la UE. El análisis abarca 130 regiones de nueve Estados miembros, que en conjunto representan casi cuatro de cada cinco trabajadores de la UE. El estudio pone de manifiesto que, mientras que los Estados miembros se asemejan cada vez más en sus estructuras de empleo, las regiones de un mismo país son cada vez más dispares. También se observa que las ciudades presentan un porcentaje desproporcionadamente elevado de puestos de trabajo en servicios bien remunerados y altamente cualificados, junto con un crecimiento del empleo mal remunerado. Los resultados apoyan la continuación de la ayuda de la política regional de la UE a las regiones en peligro de quedar rezagadas.
