A new study in Portugal has found that a third of those who struggle to make ends meet have a stable job.

The nationwide study on poverty found that overall, 60 percent of the country’s most needy people have jobs, either seasonal or part-time, but still struggle to put food on the table.

Only 13 percent of Portuguese considered poor are jobless, while 27 percent are low-income pensioners.

Other factors which researchers said contribute to poverty are divorce or long-term illness.
