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.

    Spremembe v strukturi delovnih mest v Evropi med veliko recesijo - Povzetek

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    V tem poročilu je opisan vpliv recesije na zaposlovanje v EU27, pri čemer so prikazane spremembe v stopnjah zaposlitve med drugim četrtletjem leta 2008 in drugim četrtletjem leta 2010 ter porazdelitev teh sprememb po lestvici plač. Ugotovljeno je, da so se še naprej povečevale zaposlitve na najbolje plačanih delovnih mestih, predvsem v storitvah, ki temeljijo na znanju, in poslovnih storitvah. Medtem pa se je zaradi izgub srednje plačanih delovnih mest v gradbeništvu in proizvodnji zaposlovanje zmanjšalo na sredini lestvice plač. Moški so izgubili več delovnih mest kot ženske, več delovnih mest pa je bilo ustvarjenih za starejše delavce. Medtem ko se je delo s krajšim delovnim časom razširilo po vsej lestvici plač, je bila večina rasti zaposlovanja od leta 2009 na (slabše plačanih) začasnih delovnih mestih.
