Abstract

The article analyzes the extent and features of in-work poverty in Lithuania in the aftermath of the global economic crisis of 2007-2008. It argues that significant expansion of the phenomenon during this time period was fostered by the neoliberal policies that have been shaping the welfare system in the country for more than two decades. Furthermore, it brings attention to the employment conditions and helps to understand experiences of those who live in in-work poverty. This article reveals that, during the investigated period, in-work poverty in Lithuania was associated with being a woman, having children, belonging to single-parent household, and being employed in a precarious working environment.
