The European Commission has recently published the 15th edition of Employment in Europe 2003. Comments by Jelle Visser, Wiemer Salverda & Paul de Beer.
The 15th edition of the annual Employment in Europe report is the first Employment in Europe report in which the acceding and accession countries have been almost fully integrated into the analysis. After presenting a panorama of recent developments in European labour markets, this report looks at several important issues of relevance to the new European Employment Strategy: it investigates the relationship between employment specialisation, skills and productivity. It further reflects on wage structures and the link between wages and productivity in an enlarged Union, and assesses existing wage differentiation across skills, sectors and regions. Quality in work is addressed in the context of labour market dynamics and flexibility. Finally, the ageing of the population and immigration are examined with regard to the implications for labour supply and employment.
