EU Member States should prevent phenomena of in-work poverty, as suggested also in Commission Recommendation 2008/867/EC54 of 3 October 2008. In-work poverty is particularly damaging for Roma since it contributes to their marginalisation, reinforces the vicious circle of exclusion, and further fuels anti- Gypsyism. On-the-job training and work placements boosting skills and qualifications may break this circle, making quality jobs with adequate remuneration, safe working conditions and career prospects available also for Roma. In designing such measures, Member States should take into account the June 2016 Council Conclusions on Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion: an Integrated Approach. They stress that preventing and fighting in-work poverty requires acknowledging the multidimensional nature of poverty and its impacts on employment, health and long-term care, reconciliation of work and family life, education and housing, as well as the different risks of poverty for women and men throughout the life cycle, from early childhood to old age.
