Social concertation and middle-class stability in Belgium
Sarah Kuypers and
Chapter 3 in Europe's Disappearing Middle Class?, 2016, pp 112-159 from Edward Elgar Publishing
While recent studies have highlighted the phenomenon and risks of increased inequalities between the top and the bottom of society, little research has so far been carried out on trends relating to the median income range that generally represents the middle class. This volume examines the following questions: what are the main transformations in the world of work over the last 20 years in terms of the labour market, social dialogue, and conditions of work, wages and incomes that may have affected the middle class? How has the middle class been altered by the financial and economic crisis? What are the long-term trends for the middle class in Europe?
