This report looks in detail at recent shifts in the employment structure at Member State and EU level, examining the main sectors and occupations that have contributed to job loss and job growth. It  finds, for example, that in 2011–2013, the majority of net employment  losses continued to occur in middle-paid and low-to-middle-paid jobs  in construction and manufacturing. Employment growth remained  resilient in high-paid, high-skilled jobs, and knowledge-intensive services have been the main source of this growth. The report also  examines some of the likely drivers behind the changing employment  structure: technological change, globalisation and labour market  institutions.
