Eurofound: Changes during crisis have benefitted women

Euractive general - Lun, 18/08/2014 - 13:52

The economic crisis has boosted growth in high-wage jobs. This has mainly benefited women, according to a study by Eurofound.  

While high-wage jobs have been in demand, middle-wage jobs have been destroyed in huge numbers. The sectors which were most severely shaken by the crisis, manufacturing and construction, have a concentration of jobs in the mid-paying range.

Euractive general - Lun, 18/08/2014 - 11:26

The cost of caring for Europe's elderly nuclear plants

Euractive general - Lun, 18/08/2014 - 08:45

Europe's ageing nuclear fleet will undergo more prolonged outages over the next few years, reducing the reliability of power supply and costing plant operators many millions of dollars.

Nuclear power provides about a third of the European Union's electricity generation, but the 28-nation bloc's 131 reactors are well past their prime, with an average age of 30 years.

And the energy companies, already feeling the pinch from falling energy prices and weak demand, want to extend the life of their plants into the 2020s, to put off the drain of funding new builds.

German wages not rising sharply enough, says EU commissioner

Euractive general - Lun, 18/08/2014 - 07:45

European Employment Commissioner Laszlo Andor said wages in Germany were not climbing sharply enough and the government should ensure that salaries increased in line with productivity.

Andor did not spell out his reasons, but some economists and officials have supported the case for higher German wages as a way of reducing Berlin's competitive advantage over other euro zone members and ironing out imbalances across the region.

Ukraine makes breakthrough against pro-Russia separatists

Euractive general - Lun, 18/08/2014 - 07:26

Ukrainian forces have raised their national flag over a police station in the city of Luhansk that was for months under rebel control, Kyiv said yesterday (17 August), in what could be a breakthrough in Ukraine's efforts to crush pro-Moscow separatists.

Ukrainian officials said, however, the rebels were fighting a desperate rearguard action to hold on to Luhansk - which is their supply route into neighbouring Russia - and that the flow of weapons and fighters from Russia had accelerated.

Euractive general - Lun, 18/08/2014 - 07:05
