Abstract: The German labour market has developed positively in the third term of the Merkel Government. The stable upward trend of the labour market is largely attributable to an increase in part-time employment, often in the service industry and in the low-wage sector. The increased magnitude of employment in the low-wage sector contributed to the solidifying of inequalities in income levels, despite the steady upward trend of employment in general.
