Although according to official statistics Croatia’s unemployment rate sits at just above a high 17%, the actual number of people out of work is a lot less after it was revealed by a study from the International Labour Organisation (ILO) that over a third of Croatia’s workforce are working “under the table”.
ILO reports, titled Global employment trends in 2013, indicated that the number of people working under the table in Southeast Europe had markedly grown, especially in Croatia, Albania and Kosovo.
The number of workers in Albania and Kosovo hired under the table had grown from 30% to 35% from 2000 to 2010, whilst in Croatia that number had grown from 31% to 33%.
