Slovakia has among Europe’s lowest rates of workers having two employers simultaneously, at just 1 percent, according to Poštová Banka. Only Bulgaria (0.4 percent) has a lower rate and the trend runs contrary to working patterns in Sweden (8.5 percent) and Denmark (7.9 percent). The EU average was 3.8 percent in 2012.
One in seven economically active people in Slovakia doesn't have a job, according to the latest statistics released by the Eurostat statistics office, and those with two jobs are rare. As TASR newswire reported Monday, July 29 citing Poštová Banka, the number of people working simultaneously for two employers in 2012 stood at approximately 24,000, which equates to only 1 percent of all employees. In terms of gender, 12,200 men had a second job in 2012 compared to 11,900 women.
