The global financial crisis interrupted a protracted period of strong economic growth and poverty reduction in the Russian Federation. Despite a large decline in output, job losses and hikes in unemployment have remained rather modest, and much of the labour market adjustment has taken the form of cuts in working hours and, in particular, earnings. While a recovery is now underway, the Russian labour market remains characterised by significant structural imbalances resulting in widespread segmentation and large earnings inequalities. High worker turnover points to a dynamic labour market, but employment growth has been mostly in lower quality jobs and atypical contracts have increased. Also, regional disparities remain large as poverty traps hinder workers moving across regions in search of available jobs.
