For example, the employment of women in the booming health and care industry has proven to be a more sustainable bridge to regular employment than, for example, the work of eastern german men in environmental protection projects and landscape conservation.
This is the result of a study by the nurnberg institute for labor market and occupational research (IAB).
Comparatively quickly, even those one-euro jobbers who were employed in childcare or youth welfare found a job subject to social security contributions, report the authors of the study, markus kiesel and joachim wolff. According to the researchers, it was mainly west german women who were considered difficult to place who benefited from the fact that many new jobs were created in these sectors.
In contrast, there have hardly been any vacancies for east german workers in the areas where they do their one-euro jobs. Their job opportunities had even deteriorated during their employment in environmental protection projects and in landscape conservation compared to long-term unemployed people without a one-euro job.
In most of the cases studied, however, the one-euro jobs had improved the chances of integration for those affected during the seven-year study period. The one-euro jobs, for example, had prevented the long-term unemployed from withdrawing from working life in a discouraged manner. This was more often the case with unsolicited long-term unemployed people.
