There are big differences between the working conditions faced in El Salvador and Germany. Yet there are many common problems as well, says a new report on global working conditions. A report on the working conditions of more than 1 billion workers around the world has found stark differences among those surveyed depending on where they live and their level of education.
“Working conditions in a global perspective”— a joint study by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and Eurofound, an EU agency — analyzed and compared working conditions in 41 different countries over the last five years.
It covers China, the USA, the EU28, South Korea, Turkey, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and six Spanish-speaking Central American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama.
