Yet when comparing European employment patterns with US patterns, and when looking at trends, it emerges that Europe is still behind America in the creation of jobs in business services and in the health and education sectors. Health and education in Europe is largely funded by governments, and this might explain why there is restraint in the creation of more jobs. The fiscal costs might be too high for voters. Business services need to operate in a flexible environment, because in a regulated market firms might prefer to service their own business internally. The presentation will review the work patters in Europe and compare them both across Europe and with America, and reach conclusions about the type of jobs that can be created in Europe to satisfy the overall employment objectives of the Union.
