Focus on 6 subjects l.jpg

Focus on 6 subjects

  • working time (length week, opt-out, annualised hrs, on call, shifts Sat/Sun)

  • low pay (SMWs, share under LPT)

  • training (length, employer-provided, self-paid, training worthwhile)

  • older workers (age, education, expectations, working time, low pay, training, collective bargaining coverage, work-related stress)

  • collective bargaining coverage (coverage, ‘don’t know’, coverage regarded important)

  • work-related stress (physically/mentally exhausting, work at very high speed, -- cannot be finished in allocated time, -- to tight deadlines)
