Employment in the Lean Years : Policy and Prospects for the Next Decade Paperback / softback

Edited by David (Professor of Industrial Relations, London School of Economics) Marsden



Over the last fifteen years, the deregulation of Britain's labour market has led to economic growth, employment opportunities, and a more diverse workforce: the 'fat years'. However, now as Britain faces its lean years with job cuts, rising unemployment, income insecurity, and related social strains, how can and should the government and key labour market policy makers ensure the labour market provides job opportunities and reasonable levels of social justice?

The fundamental changes that have occurred in labour market institutions mean that 'solutions' of previous decades no longer work.

This volume sets out to address the major challenges faced: - Unemployment, immigration, housing and job subsidies- Key institutional changes, such as the decline of collective regulation, rise of occupational licensing, and the National Minimum Wage- Pay and subsidies in the private and public sectorContributions from leading experts in the field employ the latest theory and empirical research to examine a different set of problems and the policies that could help to resolve them.
