The availability of work with good wages and conditions makes a big difference to our material wellbeing and the kinds of lives we lead. When things go wrong for significant numbers of people in the labour market, the wider social and economic consequences can be profound.

At this online event we will address a number of key questions. What has been happening to inequalities in the UK’s labour market? To what extent do these trends result from policy? What have been the impacts of growing forms of non-traditional employment, such as work in the gig economy, on labour market inequalities? What tools do we have to boost incomes for workers, and for whom are these effective? What are the big policy challenges going forward?
This event will be chaired by Paul Johnson, IFS, and will feature talks from:
- Kate Bell, TUC
- Richard Blundell, IFS & UCL

After the presentations, there will be plenty of time for your questions.
