Résumé

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. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Mutations en matière d’emploi et inégalité salariale: Observatoire européen de l’emploi 2017

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    En 2016, soit un peu plus tard que d’autres économies développées, l’Union européenne a surmonté l’ensemble des pertes nettes d’emploi subies depuis la crise financière mondiale. À partir de l’année 2013, les emplois bien rémunérés n’ont que très peu bénéficié de la croissance de l’emploi, contrairement aux emplois faiblement et moyennement rémunérés qui ont, quant à eux, enregistré une forte augmentation. Les nouveaux emplois ont de plus en plus tendance à être des emplois à temps plein plutôt qu’à temps partiel. La première partie de ce sixième rapport annuel de l’Observatoire européen de l’emploi examine en détail, du deuxième trimestre 2011 au deuxième trimestre 2016, les mutations en matière d’emploi dans les États membres et dans l’Union dans son ensemble. La seconde partie étudie comment l’emploi structure l’inégalité salariale en Europe. Il ressort ainsi que l’emploi a une incidence particulière à cet égard, à l’instar d’autres facteurs médiateurs, tels que le capital humain ou la classe sociale. En outre, la dynamique du marché de l’emploi n’a pas engendré d’évolution en matière d’inégalité salariale au cours de la dernière décennie, période d’intenses changements structurels dans les marchés du travail européens.

  • 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.
