Sommario

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.

    Cambiamenti professionali e disuguaglianze salariali: Osservatorio sull’occupazione in Europa attivo presso Eurofound 2017

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Nel 2016, un po’ più tardi rispetto ad altre economie sviluppate, l’UE ha recuperato tutte le perdite nette di occupazione sostenute a partire dalla crisi finanziaria globale. La crescita dell’occupazione dal 2013 ha virato solo in misura modesta verso posti di lavoro ben retribuiti. Si è registrata una crescita sostenuta anche nei lavori poco e mediamente retribuiti. È sempre più probabile che i nuovi posti di lavoro siano a tempo pieno, piuttosto che a tempo parziale. La prima parte di questa sesta relazione annuale dell’Osservatorio delle professioni in Europa attivo presso Eurofound analizza nel dettaglio i recenti cambiamenti occorsi nell’ambito dell’occupazione a livello di Stati membri e dell’UE dal secondo trimestre del 2011 al secondo trimestre del 2016. La seconda parte esamina il ruolo che le professioni svolgono nella strutturazione delle disuguaglianze salariali in Europa. È emerso che le professioni hanno le loro ripercussioni sulle disuguaglianze salariali e influenzano altri fattori come il capitale umano e la classe sociale. Inoltre, in base alla relazione, la dinamica occupazionale non ha determinato sviluppi delle disuguaglianze salariali nell’ultimo decennio, un periodo di intensi cambiamenti strutturali nei mercati del lavoro europei.
