ANKARA – The number of insured workers in the manufacturing industry reached 3,326,000 in September 2012. Thirty-nine percent of the total employment in manufacturing was in the textiles, wearing apparel and food products sectors.

The fourteenth issue of the TEPAV Employment Monitoring Bulletin reports that insured employment in the manufacturing sector increased by 72,000 month-on-month and by 218,000 year-on-year in September 2012.

According to the Bulletin, the highest increase in manufacturing employment between September 2011 and 2012 was in the manufacture of textile products sector with a rise by 45,000, followed by manufacture of wearing apparels sector (increased by 43,000) and manufacture of food products sector (increased by 26,000). Insured employment in these sectors therefore reached 421,000 for textiles, 442,000 for wearing apparel and 423,000 for food products sectors.

Therefore, the remarkable increase in the insured employment in manufacturing industry is associated rather with the shift from informal to insured employment.”
