This chapter examines country differences and trends in job insecurity. It is shown that the countries where job security is strongest are also those whose class differentials are the lowest. This supports the view that an ‘inclusive’ employment regime allows for a higher level of integration in the labour market than either a ‘dualist’ or ‘market’ regime does with respect to this particular type of employee division. Although there is a correlation in every country between job insecurity and poor quality of work, the statistical relationship between these two dimensions of employment is notably weaker in Denmark and in Sweden than in the other countries.
