Middle skill jobs erosion
Middle skill jobs have been eroded over the last decade while high and low skill jobs have increased, creating an hourglass shape.
This hampers the career development of those in low skilled work. It becomes much harder to move up the ladder when the rungs are spaced further apart.
There’s little point in complaining about laziness, those who won’t take these jobs are often making rational decisions.
We don't really want an army of underpaid Brits working uncomfortable hours in jobs which pay nothing.
It would be better to wonder why they cannot find better ones—and what the government can do to help them to.
