Event description

Description

Employment in Europe has become increasingly polarised into high and low skilled work. With more people forced into low-paid, temporary or part-time positions, what are the implications for their lives and wellbeing? Should the worst affected, arguably the young and migrants, accept that any job is better than no job? Or does poor quality employment present a cause for concern for companies, society and the economy? 

This event is part of the British Academy Debates on Inequalities
