Abstract

Massive unemployment and underemployment has been the major implication of 2008-crisis in Europe and particularly in the most vulnerable economies, as Greece. The shock resulted to decreased job-vacancy rates and increased job-seeker rates all over Europe. In a most recent study we focus on un/underemployment to particularly explore the post-crisis demand and supply discrepancy of the Greek labour market. Seeking to provide a coherent analysis of employability patterns across regional labour markets in Greece, we analyze regional-level data (employment flows, industrial specialization and labour market specificities) and individual-level data (demographic factors, qualifications and personal attitudes). We argue that regional un/underemployment is largely attributed to the mismatch between low-skill job vacancies and job-seekers’ high qualifications.
