This thesis contains three independent chapters that draw on and contribute to the literature on economic and social disadvantages and labour economics. Using three independent essays, I focus on three issues related to non-standard employment; employment in a non-standard setting, i.e. employment among homeless people; and non-standard methods of acquiring financial resources. Specifically, the first essay analyses the effect of non-permanent contractual employment on financial hardship, the second essay studies how the experience of homelessness affects employment entry and exit, and the third essay examines the circumstances influencing the informal survival activities used by disadvantaged populations.
