This paper will explore the work status of the EU migrants in temporary jobs, drawing on the data obtained from the Labour Force Survey. In particular, comparing systematically with the rest of the workforce in temporary and permanent jobs, it will be argued that the work status of these migrant populations embodies the disadvantages related to both ethnic divisions and short-term recruitment. To start with, the paper will provide an overall review of temporary employment among the EU migrants, and then it will document the evidence with regard to demographic, regional, industrial and occupational variations. Finally, the paper will analyse the disadvantaged positions of the EU migrants in temporary jobs in terms of pay, workload, training and unionisation.
