Overview

This book takes a fresh look at the issue of job quality, analyzing employer behavior and the agenda for policy intervention. Between 1997 and 2002, more than twelve million new jobs were created in the European Union and labour market participation increased by more than eight million. While a good deal of these new jobs have been created in high-tech and/or knowledge-intensive sectors providing workers with decent pay, job security, training and career development prospects, a significant share of jobs, particularly in labor-intensive service sector industries fail to do so. This volume provides new perspectives on this highly debated and policy relevant issue.
