TOUCHSTONE EXTRA Tracking the Labour Market RecoveryDownload Tracking the Labour Market Recovery [PDF]

"Tracking the Labour Market Recovery" is a new report in the Touchstone Extra series, looking at how the UK labour market has changed since the 2008 global financial crisis. Some changes, such as the increase in part-time employment and the fall in productivity are likely to be cyclical, and can be expected to right themselves. Others, such as the growth in Zero Hours Contracts and the rise of self-employment in low pay industries are more likely to be structural, and will not be reversed without specific policy changes.
