Just over half of Europeans (53 per cent) say their working conditions are good, according to a new survey by a new survey by Eurobarometer covering the 28 member states.
At the same time, almost 60 per cent say their working conditions have deteriorated in the last 5 years. Twenty-seven per cent say conditions have stayed th per cent of the respondents still say that they are 'satisfied' with their current working conditions, though these have deteriorated in the last five years, according to almost 60 per cent of the workers.
Working conditions were defined in the survey as working time, work organisation, health and safety at work, employee representation and relationship with the employer.
The survey reveals wide disparities in worker satisfaction between member states. While 87 per cent of the Danes say their working conditions are good, only 16 per cent of Greeks say the same.
Among the countries where respondents are satisfied with their current working conditions, Denmark also came on top (94 per cent), followed by the Austrians and Belgians (both at 90 per cent) and the Finns (89 per cent).
