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.

    European Jobs Monitor 2019: Shifts in the employment structure at regional level

    Osservatorio sull’occupazione in Europa attivo presso Eurofound 2019: cambiamenti nella struttura occupazionale a livello regionale

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    I dati accumulati indicano che i grandi centri metropolitani stanno registrando risultati decisamente migliori rispetto ad altre regioni in seno agli Stati membri dell’UE. Tale disuguaglianza interregionale contribuisce alla disillusione nei confronti dei sistemi politici esistenti, il che a sua volta può indebolire i legami sociali alla base dei sistemi democratici. Questo è il contesto in cui si inserisce l’edizione 2019 dell’Osservatorio sull’occupazione in Europa, che analizza i cambiamenti nella struttura occupazionale delle regioni dell’UE, vale a dire il cambiamento nella distribuzione dell’occupazione tra professioni e settori. L’analisi interessa 130 regioni di nove Stati membri, che insieme rappresentano quasi quattro lavoratori dell’UE su cinque. Lo studio rileva che, se da un lato gli Stati membri stanno diventando più simili nelle loro strutture occupazionali, dall’altro le regioni all’interno dello stesso paese stanno diventando più eterogenee. Evidenzia inoltre che nelle città si registra una quota sproporzionatamente elevata di posti di lavoro ben retribuiti e altamente qualificati nei servizi nonché una crescita dei posti di lavoro scarsamente retribuiti. I risultati sostengono la necessità di proseguire con l’assistenza della politica regionale dell’UE a favore delle regioni che rischiano di rimanere indietro.
