UK Employment and Skills in a Global Recession: What Can We Do Now?
Bewick, Tom
Learning and Skills Network (NJ3)
As the United Kingdom enters its most serious recession for decades, the main policy focus has been on measures that can contain the situation. This paper presents a call to look ahead--beyond the immediate piecemeal measures--proposing more comprehensive labour market reforms that aim to protect and develop the UK skills base. It presents practical solutions that can be delivered immediately on a sectoral basis, seeking to build-in competitiveness as we emerge from recession. (Contains 3 figures, 1 table and 58 footnotes.)
