Visualizing Mini-Jobs in Germany

by Michael Steinberg

Correctiv, a nonprofit German research center, published a series of interactive visualizations illustrating the percentage of Germans who work “mini-jobs,” which are low-wage, part-time, income tax-exempt positions common in fields such as catering and retail. The visualizations use data from the German Federal Agency for Employment to illustrate the ratio of men to women between ages 25 and 65 that solely rely on mini-job employment, how common mini-jobs are in different regions of Germany, and the average duration of mini-jobs. Correctiv found that a higher percentage of women rely on mini-jobs than men because many married women use minijobs, rather than full-time work, to supplement their spouse’s salaries, or are forced to only take mini-jobs due to a lack of childcare services.
