Permanently low-paid workers – scope and characteristics

The project will be based on wage statistics and register data, and examine the extent of and characteristics of permanently low paid workers in Norway. More specifically, the characteristics of the people, their jobs, and where in the labour market they are located will be mapped. Furthermore, an econometric analysis will be made to determine whether the permanently low-wage earners were more likely to lose their jobs when the corona crisis hit Norway in 2020.
