This chapter examines the falling demand for low-skilled workers in Europe. It draws on data from the European Union Targeted Socio-Economic Research project, NEWSKILLS, which analysed the position of low-skilled workers in France, Germany, UK, Sweden, Netherlands, and Portugal. It argues that policies should help low-skilled workers increase their skills to prevent high unemployment and inactivity rates, which leads to social exclusion.
