A panel discuss how we can define and measure poverty in the labour market, using the UK as a case study
Given the worldwide cost-of-living crisis and likely recession, more policy attention is being given to poverty and employment. In the UK, as in other countries, workers in low-wage unstable jobs with poor working conditions are likely to suffer disproportionately during this crisis. This exacerbates existing inequalities.
An expert panel will discuss how we can define and measure this deprivation and poverty within the labour market, focusing on the UK. It will consider the policy implications of this research alongside other potential labour market disruptions such as technological changes, climate change, population ageing, and migration.
