Description

featuring

Ashwin Kumar

Professor of Social Policy │ Manchester Metropolitan University


The UK’s employment rate is at an historic high, but so is in-work poverty.

Twenty years ago, the solution to poverty used to be thought of as getting people into work; today we have an epidemic of low-paid work with little chance of progression.

In this free seminar Ashwin will look at the current relationship between the UK’s productivity and low-pay and explore the role of gender.

Ashwin has a wealth of experience in this field and is a respected commentator on social policy and appears regularly on TV and in print discussing productivity, poverty, working conditions for people on low wages, housing and household incomes.
