The analyses reveals a chaotic development of hiring incentives that has not solved the key deficiencies underlying this tool; weak relationship with training programmes and conditions upon companies benefiting from these incentives. The use of reduced social security contributions introduces sustainability problems for the whole social security and pension systems.
