Employment, Pay and Poverty: Evidence and policy review

Employment, Pay and Poverty: Evidence and policy review

Kathryn Ray, Paul Sissons, Katy Jones and Sandra Vegeris
02 July 2014

This report examines the relationship between employment, pay and poverty.  It is one of a number of evidence reviews commissioned by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) to support their development of an anti-poverty strategy for the UK.  More information can be found at http://www.jrf.org.uk/work/workarea/anti-poverty-strategy

The review takes stock of what has been learnt about the relationship between employment, pay and poverty and examines the impact of employment-related interventions on poverty reduction.

It had four key aims:

•             To review the evidence on the links between employment, pay and poverty in the UK and to examine how this compares to other countries;
•             To review evidence on the impact of employment-related policy and practice interventions to address poverty;
•             To identify gaps in the evidence base; and
•             To identify the policy and practice implications of the evidence.
