Labour Markets and Social Deprivation
MetadataShow full item record
An increasing proportion of the population appears to be socially deprived. They are unable to enjoy either the level of leisure or consumption which most members of society expect. One of the main causes of social deprivation is the ways that labour markets operate. This paper discusses how labour markets become segmented, and the links between segmentation and social deprivation. The broader consequences of social deprivation are discussed, and it is argued that, if social deprivation is not to get worse, major change in social and economic policies is required.
