Dr. Jonathan Latner presented current work on “Escaping in-work poverty in Europe: Stable jobs, permanent contracts, or good economies?” at the IAB conference on Labour market transitions: Challenges for public policies and research”. The conference was a hybrid conference, combining in person presentations as well as online.
