OECD employment outlook: 2008

Publication date

2008

Abstract

OECD Employment Outlook is the OECD’s annual report on the state of labour markets and employment across the OECD area.
The 2008 edition reports that employment rates in OECD countries have never been higher, with two-thirds of working-age people now in work.
But some groups still lag behind: Women are 20% less likely to be in work than men, while ethnic minorities face a much longer job search than other people.
Past reforms have helped level the playing field, but more needs to be done, including the enforcement of existing anti-discrimination laws and the introduction of policies that encourage non-discriminatory hiring.
