Info -

low educated worker


native worker, legal or illegal immigrant expected to have the average cognitive skills of all lower educated workers in a country

Context: Info

In Italy, workplaces requiring no literacy skills at all have the largest contribution but small businesses tend to employ low educated workers at a large scale even in highly complex jobs. In Hungary, insufficient skills (relative to Norway) and an undersized small-firm sector (relative to Italy) set limits to the inclusion of the low educated.
