Publication year:
Place of publication:

Contains 2 essays on work and welfare. The first looks at the official and the real extent of joblessness and probes the collapse in demand for unskilled male labour. The second argues that the distribution of jobs is as important as the overall number, identifying a growing trend of 'work rich' families, with 2 earners, and 'work poor' families, with none. Argues for labour market, training and social security reforms to counter this trend.
