Low pay

Workertech and low pay

An overview of research on low-paid workers in the UK

This briefing note summarises Resolution Foundation research on low-paid workers and their experiences of work and the labour market. These are the workers that we are trying to reach with Resolution Ventures and the Workertech Partnership. It highlights that some groups of workers are more likely to be low paid, including the young, those working part-time and those in sectors including hospitality, leisure and retail. It also shows that low-paid workers are more likely to experience other forms of labour market disadvantage.
