Unstable employment reduces wages and well-being of Kyrgyzstan workers

""

In Kyrgyzstan, more than 70% of the active labour force is employed informally and less than half of wage employees have a permanent job. A team of local PEP researchers found that employment vulnerability (defined as a lack of job security or stability, underemployment, unwanted jobs, or unstable remuneration) reduces workers’ earnings and well-being. The effect is more severe for women who see their earnings reduced by up to 26%.
