Kopsavilkums

Being in work greatly reduces the risk of poverty. Nevertheless, in the European Union, 8% of the employed population fell into the category of ‘working poor’ in 2007, in the sense of having an income below 60% of the national average. The proportion varies markedly across countries and social groups. In most countries, the issue of working poor is not a policy priority of either the government or the social partners, although it can be included in general policies to combat poverty and social exclusion. Although there is little evidence to prove it to date, the working poor are likely to have been particularly affected by the current economic recession.

    Strādājošo nabadzība Eiropā - Kopsavilkums

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Ir vispāratzīts, ka darba esamība ievērojami samazina nabadzības risku. Tomēr Eiropas Savienībā 8 % strādājošo iedzīvotāju 2007. gadā ietilpa “trūcīgu strādājošo” kategorijā, proti, viņu ienākumi nepārsniedza 60 % valsts vidējā rādītāja. Šī proporcija dažādās valstīs un sabiedrības grupās ievērojami atšķiras. Lielākajā daļā valstu strādājošo nabadzība nav ne valsts, ne sociālo partneru politikas prioritāte, lai gan tā nereti ir iekļauta vispārējā nabadzības un sociālās atstumtības apkarošanas politikā.
