While recent studies have highlighted the phenomenon and risks of increased inequalities between the top and the bottom, little research has been carried out on trends relating to the middle income range that generally represents the middle class.
This volume examines the main transformations in the world of work over the last 20 years in terms of the labour market, social dialogue, conditions of work, wages and income, and looks at how these changes have impacted the middle class. The book issues a warning about the latest trends and presents considerations to policy-makers for ensuring the future of the middle class in Europe.
