Low-wage jobs in the Swedish labor market. Which are the low-wage jobs, where are they, and why are they increasing?
There is an ongoing debate regarding transformations of the Swedish occupational structure. This researchproject will investigate the development of low-wage jobs in Sweden during the period 2005-2019. The purpose is to better understand and explain this development. We will describe whether these jobs are growing relative to other parts of the occupational structure, if they are a stepping-stone to better jobs, where these jobs arise - are they increasing mainly in metropolitan regions or more generally across the country - and seek explanations for the development of low-wage jobs.
