Low-wage workers in the UK – improving progression, improving jobs

This event forms part of our Bottom Ten Million programme, a two-year programme investigating in-work poverty. The programme is supported by the Barrow Cadbury Trust, Working Links, the Private Equity Foundation, and the Tudor Trust.
Low-wage workers face a challenging time. In the short term, rising living costs and high unemployment keep incomes down. Yet progress in tackling poverty and worklessness were slow even before the recession, and long-term change in the labour market threatens to polarise employment into good and bad jobs - with limited mobility between the two.
In response, policymakers face a dilemma: should they seek to improve mobility from low-wage work? Or focus on ‘upgrading’ bad jobs?
This event is by invitation only. To find out further information about this event please contact Alice Holland on 0207 976 3513 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
