Along with urbanisation in recent years, the social disparities in the UK’s labour market have become a prominent issue. This lecture will introduce the trends in earnings, employment and tax/benefits inequality in the UK. Existing data and associated challenges will be discussed, and the underlying causes of the phenomenon: “more work, and more ‘atypical’ work”.
