Is Starting as a Self-Employed Person a New Tendency? Independent Entrepreneurs without Personnel in a More Flexible System of Industrial Relations. It is often assumed that more people than ever are starting small businesses as self-employed without any personnel. Such businesses are viewed as the potential "job machine" of the future. An analysis of the developments on the Dutch labor market, however, does not show any fundamental change: the share of independent entrepreneurs among workforce has remained stable. About 50% of the independents are self-employed people without any manpower; this share is stable too. However, in some sections of the economy, eg, the construction industry, commercial services, and health, there is a considerable increase in this category, which is attributed to specific labor relations in these sections, ie, low labor satisfaction, low level of commencing capital, and deregulation. 3 Tables, 33 References.
