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

    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.

    Observatório Europeu do Emprego 2019: mudanças na estrutura do emprego a nível regional

    Autor(es): 
    Eurofound

    Cada vez mais dados indicam que os grandes centros metropolitanos apresentam resultados muito melhores do que outras regiões dos Estados-Membros da UE. Esta desigualdade inter-regional contribui para o desencanto em relação aos sistemas políticos existentes, o que, por sua vez, pode enfraquecer os laços sociais que estão na base dos nossos sistemas democráticos. Este é o contexto da edição de 2019 do Observatório Europeu do Emprego, que analisa as mudanças na estrutura do emprego, ou seja, a mudança na repartição do emprego, por profissões e setores, das regiões da UE. A análise abrange 130 regiões de 9 Estados-Membros que, no seu conjunto, representam cerca de 4 em cada 5 trabalhadores da UE. Segundo o estudo, enquanto os Estados-Membros apresentam estruturas de emprego cada vez mais semelhantes, as regiões do mesmo país estão a tornar-se mais díspares. O estudo mostra igualmente que as cidades apresentam uma percentagem desproporcionadamente elevada de empregos bem remunerados e altamente qualificados no setor dos serviços, a par de um aumento dos empregos mal remunerados. As conclusões do estudo apontam para necessidade da continuação do apoio da política regional da UE a favor das regiões em risco de ficar para trás.
