Every tenth Austrian employee can’t survive with salary

Every tenth Austrian employee is not able to survive with the salary. 350.000 persons are affected. The numbers are increasing. 10 years ago only 256.000 were affected.

In consequence of the financial crisis more and more Austrians, especially women, have to accept a precarious employment. Typical fields of such jobs are call center agents or delivery man for advertising material. But the creativity has no limit. Some entrepreneurs try to hire out their hair salon. They have no employees anymore. All hairdressers are working on a single person company basis.

The trade union demands a minimum wage of 1.300 Euro in Austria. Everything else is something like a modern slavery, says the spokeswoman of the trade union.
