The present paper reveals recent insights since 2017 on the topics of in-working poverty and on the determinant factors that influence it, analyzing quality of work correlated with the perception of social tension between groups. The study covers a set of indicators that serve to monitor the labour market reforms in Romania. The results show that the in-working poverty rate in Romania is almost double than the average of the European Union. In this context, an efficient system of measures is needed in order to have a significant increase in the employment rate, which is the key to the reduction of poverty. On the other hand, hiring unemployed people corroborates with the increase in soft skills of the individuals, and contributes to the increase in participation rate on the labour market.
