    Diversification in Employment Arrangement and Disparities in Labor Markets The Economically Active Population Survey found that irregular workers accounted for less than 35% of all paid workers. However, the actual size of vulnerable workers is much bigger considering the indirectly employed workers and those at the border between paid and unpaid labor, who are not properly represented in the survey. The composition of vulnerable workers in the labor market is extremely disparate due to the diversification of employment arrangement. Many are outside the traditional employment relations, experience insecurity in employment and wage level, and do not benefit from social insurance coverage. The phenomenon could be described as the so-called Precariatization of the lower segment in the labor market. This calls for greater policy attention on indirect and special types of employment in particular. ​
