Insights/Research

The labor market is currently dominated by divergent trends. On the one hand, we have enormous technological progress and innovation as well as record high profits of large corporations, which are competing for the best talents with attractive wages and new work models. On the other hand, we have rising prices, a declining labor’s share of GDP, stagnating wages, especially those of middle-class workers, resulting in a polarization of the labor market. What are the causes of these trends and what solutions from business and politics are needed to safeguard prosperity and counteract polarizing trends that are harmful to society?

The European Single Market allows its citizens to choose in which country they want to work. This freedom of movement should lead to a convergence of wages and employment rates across countries. However, despite increasing migration flows within Europe, a full equilibration of wage levels is not in sight.
