Abstract

[Between 1997 and 2002 more than 12 million new jobs were created in the European Union (EU) and labour market participation increased by more than eight million.1 According to recent analyses (European Commission, 2001a, 2002, 2003a) the majority of the new jobs were highly skilled ones in high-tech and/or knowledge-intensive sectors, offering decent pay, job security, training and career development. At the same time, however, in some sectors employment growth was stronger for temporary or low-paid jobs than for permanent, highly paid ones. The employment share of people in temporary jobs reached almost 14 per cent in 2000, and that of people in low-paid jobs around 20 per cent.]
