Ireland has the second highest percentage of low-paying jobs in the world

IN A NEW research note on inequality, Morgan Stanley economist Ellen Zentner included this fascinating chart showing that, among OECD countries, the United States has the highest proportion of low-paying jobs, with Ireland not far behind.

In Ireland, the CSO estimates the average wage to be around €688 a week, or €35,620 a year. This means that anyone earning under €23,641 is classed as low-paid by the OECD.
