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.

    Avrupa’da yoksul çalışanlar - Yönetici özeti

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    İstihdamda bulunmanın yoksulluk riskini çok önemli azalttığı azalttığı genel olarak kabul gören bir kanıdır. Buna karşın, Avrupa Birliği’nde 2007 yılında istihdamda bulunan nüfusun %8’i ulusal orta değerin `’ının altında bir gelire sahip olanları içeren ‘yoksul çalışan’ kategorisine girmiştir. Bu oran ülkeler ve sosyal gruplar arasında önemli oranda değişmektedir. Çoğu ülkede, yoksul çalışma meselesi çoğunlukla yoksulluk ve sosyal dışlamayla mücadeleye yönelik genel politikalara dahil edilmekle beraber, ne hükümetin ne de sosyal ortakların politika önceliğini teşkil etmektedir.
