Zhrnutie

This report describes the impact of the ‘great recession’ on employment and the job structure in the EU27. It finds that despite a net loss of over five million jobs between 2008–2010, employment continued to grow in top-paying jobs, largely in knowledge-intensive services and business services. Meanwhile, sharp losses in medium-paying jobs in construction and manufacturing led to a shrinking of employment in the middle of the wage spectrum. More jobs were lost to men than to women and employment levels of older workers grew while those of core-age and, in particular, younger workers declined. Part-time work expanded across the wage spectrum while levels of temporary employment began to recover quickly from 2009 onwards after having borne the brunt of the early-recession job losses. An executive summary and an Annex 8 (Quintile charts) are available - see Related content.

    Posuny v štruktúre pracovných miest v Európe v čase Veľkej recesie - Zhrnutie

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    V tejto správe sa opisuje vplyv recesie na zamestnanosť v EÚ-27, identifikujú sa posuny v úrovniach zamestnanosti medzi druhým štvrťrokom r. 2010 a druhým štvrťrokom r. 2008 a uvádza sa, ako boli tieto posuny premietnuté do mzdového spektra. Konštatuje sa v nej, že zamestnanosť pokračovala v raste v najlepšie platených pracovných miestach zväčša v službách založených na znalostiach a obchodných službách. Medzitým straty pracovných miest na úrovni stredne vysokých miezd v stavebníctve a výrobe viedli k prepadu zamestnanosti v strednej úrovni mzdového spektra. Väčšou stratou pracovných miest boli postihnutí muži než pre ženy, zatiaľ čo z tvorby pracovných miest najviac ťažili starší pracovníci. Aj keď dochádzalo k nárastu práce na čiastočný úväzok v celom mzdovom spektre, k väčšine rastu zamestnanosti od roku 2009 dochádzalo v (menej platených) dočasných pracovných miestach.
