More jobs created in Greece, but not full-time ones
The Greek government may boast about the reduction of unemployment, but most of the new jobs created are for part-time and casual roles.
This is evident in the data released this week by the Ministry of Labour. The data, collected through the ministry’s ‘Ergani’ system confirms that roughly 128,000 new jobs were created in 2017.
The vast majority of these positions, i.e. 58.05 percent, were registered as part-time work, while 42 percent of the new hirings in November 2017 were for full-time work.
Furthermore, the ministry data concludes that “elastic” forms of employment characterize one out of every two new job spots (i.e. 54.67 percent) created during the same period, while at the same time it confirms a trend among employers to change employees’ work contracts from full-time to part-time and rotational work.
Specifically, 5,181 such contract changes were recorded last month, a figure deemed as extremely high
