Abstract

Persistently high levels of low pay and in-work poverty in the UK reveal a blind spot in the Government’s otherwise impressive record on employment and poverty. This report makes the case for a coherent strategy to deal with the twin challenges of low pay and in-work poverty that emphasises job quality and career progression and recognises the needs of different families.
