Former West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt dies at age 96

The number of employees who are not pleased with their current occupation and are thus looking for another job has reached some 757,000, the Bahandceiehir Universityand’s Center for Economic and Social Research (BETAM) said in a report on Tuesday, revealing another bleak record for the Turkish job market.
The staggering amount of discontented workers constituted 3 percent of the total number of employed people — 25.5 million — in Turkey in 2013. BETAM said the corresponding ratio dropped successively during the years between 2009 and 2012, yet the ensuing year saw a large rebound, surging from 2.4 percent to 3 percent. The same figure was 3.4 percent in 2009, 3.1 percent in 2010 and 2.7 percent in 2011.
and”The vast majority of such individuals are looking for a job because they are not satisfied with their salary, with a considerable portion being uncomfortable with their working conditions,and” the report stated, indicating the most possible reasons for the dissatisfied workers.
About 80 percent of such employees ranked and”lack of satisfaction with the salaryand” as the main driver for their job search in 2009, while the same ratio dropped to 68 percent in 2013, but still remained the number one reason.
The ratio of employees seeking new jobs due to poor working conditions, on the other hand, surged from 10.4 percent to 21 percent during the same period, drawing a worsening state of affairs with regard to employee-friendly and safe working conditions.
Job safety in Turkey becomes a regular debate whenever the nongovernmental Council for Workersand’ Health and Work Safety (iSiG) discloses the number of worker deaths due to workplace accidents. According to the most recent iSiG data, workplace accidents killed 1,461 in the first 10 months of this year.
The BETAM report said discontent is widespread mostly among unregistered workers and among low-salary earning workers in an income-based survey. The dissatisfaction rate among unregistered employees was 4.4 percent in 2013. According to the Turkish Statistics Institute (TurkStat), just above one-third of Turkish employees were unregistered workers in July 2015.
BETAM forged its report compiling TurkStat data only for the years between 2009 and 2013, since the statistics pertaining to 2014 and after have yet to be disclosed. and”However, we need to underline that economic growth has shown a steep decline since 2012 and the unemployment rate posted an upward trend, rising from 9.2 percent to 9.7 percent. This development is likely to have increased the dissatisfaction among employees,and” the report maintained. The unemployment rate was 9.8 percent in July of this year.
