Better jobs, or a better image of jobs, will become crucial for certain industries and professions to prevent major shortages in their labour supply. The aging population will enhance competition between employers. At the same time, a ‘race-to-the-bottom’ is becoming more and more evident, where employers compete using loopholes in legislation, fake self-employment and problems with maintaining compliance to cut back on labour costs.
