Nevarnosti fleksibilne varnosti v času prekarnih oblik zaposlitev

Decembra sem v Konec magije fleksibilne varnosti na trgu dela povzel, kako je kolapsnil čudežni danski produkt – magija fleksibilne varnosti na trgu dela. Danski model flexicurity smo dolga leta gledali kot ideal učinkovitega trga dela – dokler ni, kot so dokumentirali na OECD, neslavno poklecnil pred veliko recesijo.

No, zdaj isto ugotavljajo tudi na Nizozemskem. Na Nizozemskem model fleksibilnosti na trgu dela ne zna odgovoriti na ključna vprašanja prihodnosti dela v času naraščanja deleža prekarnih oblik zaposlitev. Kot ugotavlja nizozemska vladna agencija WRR, preveč fleksibilnosti povzroča ljudem stres in psihološke težave, jemlje jim perspektivo v življenju, povečuje nesigurnost med mladimi, ki si ne morejo ustvariti družine in kupiti nepremičnine. Vodi pa lahko tudi k manjši inovativnosti in manj izobraževanja, s čimer pa povzroča širše makroekonomske težave.

Too much flexibility is leading to psychological problems such as stress and a lack of future perspective, as well as growing insecurity among young people who want to buy a home or start a family, the WRR report said.

In addition, the report said, too much flexibility could have an impact on the wider economy, if it leads to less innovation and education.

Around one third of the Dutch working population have a short term or flexible employment contract, the highest proportion in Europe. The WRR says it does no consider a return to ‘how things used to be’ is either an option or desirable. However, the government should look at adapting the rules and setting a good example as an employer itself.

For example, the social security system could be adapted to reduce the difference in provisions for people on permanent and temporary contracts.
