The number of jobs in the Netherlands in the second quarter of 322.000 (3 per cent) declined. An unprecedented decline in reports to the Dutch Central Bureau for Statistics (CBS) on Friday.
"It gives you a built image for the development of the employment, as a result of the coronacrisis a portion of the jobs does not work it could be," says the CBS.
The total number of hours worked, which is more to say about the actual state of the labour market in the second quarter of this year, or 6.1 per cent lower than in the first three months of the year. Such a decline is not unprecedented.
"The total number of jobs, both employees and self-employed persons, stood at 10.5 million," according to CBS. Due to the decrease of 322.000 jobs, the net job creation over the past two years, according to the statistics agency, in one fell swoop wiped out.
the Number of jobs in paid employment declined by 4 percent
In the figure, all the jobs are included in both part-time as full-time. "The figures are included in the courses of people who, because of the coronacrisis does not work, but it will get paid," explained CBS to. That is, while the coronacrisis by NOW loonsteun of the government.
The number of jobs in paid employment declined with the 334.000-almost 4 percent of the time. For the self-employed was a question of growth, with twelve thousand of jobs. The blows were falling, especially in the flexible labour: staffing and stand-by workers and people on fixed-term contracts.
"The number of jobs at employment agencies declined to 130,000 from the first to the second quarter, a decrease of 17 per cent. Even, about 150,000 jobs were lost in trade, transportation, and business services are offered primarily in the hospitality industry. Only in the government and in the information and communication, there were some posts in.
Downsizing services does the growth rate of permanent employees and self-employed people offset
The number of temporary workers in the second quarter of 272.000 is lower than in the previous year. "The number of full-time employees and the number of self-employed workers were higher than in the previous year," according to CBS. The decrease in the number of temporary workers for the first time, is greater than the rate of increase in the number of permanent employees and self-employed persons. Of the latter group grew well, but, on balance, the decline in the number of employed persons year-on-year.
CBS was already well-known that the number of unemployed people as a result of the coronacrisis unheard of in hard form. At the end of June, the counter is 404.000, which is equivalent to 4.3 per cent of the working age population.
