Only a quarter of workers have permanent jobs

Only one quarter of workers around the world have permanent jobs, according to a report by the International Labour Organization (ILO).

The remaining three quarters of the workforce are employed on temporary or short-term contracts, along with informal jobs often without a contract.

The ILO also found that many workers not in full-time employment have no pensions or benefits.

The study covered about 84% of the global workforce, said the UN agency.

Part-time jobs outpaced full-time ones between 2009 and 2013 in a majority of countries where the data was available.

The ILO says flexibility in employment does have some advantages, but it also adds to the risk that workers will be exploited.
