Abstract: The paper focuses on a rather controversial topic related to both the poverty and the labour market, referring to the common indicator: in-work poverty. This paper represents a picture of the situation of people who, despite having a job, thicken the ranks of the poor. These groups have high poverty incidence, and they must be targeted through the action plans, especially at national level, for increasing their quality of life - a major objective of national and international strategies. These people must be the subject of employment policies, so that their employment income won’t place them below the poverty line. At the same time, they must also be the subject of poverty alleviation strategies, as if their income is reduced, then they will surely be under the poverty threshold and will constitute a target group of social protection policies. Many young people are facing high poverty rates, and, moreover, if the household have children or inactive people, they faced high poverty and they constitute a more vulnerable target group. All indicators are analyzed in dynamics for 33 countries of the panel, which reports to Eurostat common indicators on poverty and social inclusion. This feedback, by analyzing poverty and in-work poverty indicators, should be an alarm signal for decision-makers, because it emphasizes that having a job is not necessarily a unique and safe protection against poverty.
