The 2016 European Parliament report on ‘Precarious Work in Europe’ highlights that the number of full-time employment contracts fell from 62% in 2003 to 59% in 2014, showing a trend of increasing atypical work relations compared to the standard ones. This does not necessarily mean that all these forms of work are precarious. However, ‘precarious working conditions have never been a choice. Precarious work is a threat not only for the individual but also for the economy as a whole’ – MEP Brando Benifei (S&D, IT). He was the co-chair of the Youth Intergroup and he is a member of the Employment Committee within the European Parlaiment. in these capacities he is an advocate for qualitative youth employment conditions and contributor to the Directive on Transparent and Predictable Working Conditions and to the legal basis of the European Solidarity Corps.
