The poverty is nowadays again actual topic among the social scientists. We are victims of sharp increase in income inequality last period. It concerns also people and families who are economically active. Poverty si usually connected to unemployment, but not always can employment protect against it. Based on EU SILC data, we determine empirical analysis using Gini coefficient and Theil index and development of this phenomenon with connection to financial crisis in last years in different groups of European countries.
