The Labour Market In Eu

The number of the EU population is around 500 million inhabitants in 2010. One of the main dreams of the European integration is to create a unified labor market but this hope proved to be difficult to come true. The integration from 2004 and 2007 of a large group of countries, 10 and 2 states which became members of the European Union raises new problems from the point of view of the single labor market. Most of the newly integrated countries are former command economies which are now working as market economies, with labor markets characterized by low salaries and a higher degree of social insecurity.
