Between Heritage and Modernity Employment and Incomes in Rural Post-Communist Romania
Keywords:employment, rural development, inequality, rural-urban
The paper follows up the changes emerged in employment and living standards of Romanian rural households over the postcommunist period. On the background of the main changes in the socioeconomic context, rural employment is related to the situation by the beginning of the post-communist transition, and to urban employment developments. Based on secondary data analysis, an unfavorable rural labor market profile and educational structure are identified. However, improvements in the employment characteristics for the last decade might be noticed, together with overall income increase and marked inequality against the urban.
