[IRELAND] POLARISATION OF THE LABOUR MAREKT POST-CRISIS [20 May 2014]

A report into the impact of the recession on the Irish labour market has been published. It reveals a pattern of ‘polarisation’, with an increase in the number of jobs at the top and at the bottom of the market. There appears to be a ‘hollowing out’ of employment in the middle-paying jobs. The main reason for this, says the report, is the huge number of job losses in the construction sector during the recession, a sector where wages tend to be at this mid-range level.
