Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A lot of relevant information is missing. How do they define low wages? Per hour, or per month? How large is the share of part time workers in this increase in the number of low wage jobs? The percentage of the people who work and are poor is of course lower than the percentage of jobless people who are poor, but that does not need to mean anything. Has there been an increase in the percentage of the working poor?
