Abstract

New research by Alex Hurrell and colleagues at the Resolution Foundation examines the persistence of low paid work using a dataset that allowed those in low paid work in 2002 to be tracked to 2012. It found that 27% had remained in low paid work and that certain types of jobs did indeed appear to provide fewer opportunities for employees to escape low pay. Of particular concern was the finding that women appear to face additional barriers to pay progression, over and above these other factors.
