Good jobs need to be hardwired into the UK economy
In a recent article for Warwick University’s Knowledge Centre Professor Chris Warhurst, co-Chair of ReWAGE, writes about good jobs – what they are and why they should be part of the Levelling Up agenda. He says that good jobs are not a ‘pick ‘n’ mix option’ and need to be hardwired into the UK economy if the Prime Minister and Chancellor’s vision of a successful future UK economy, post Brexit and net zero carbon is to be realised.
Professor Warhurst says: “Having more good jobs throughout the UK is a means to reduce inequalities between regions and people. It would be a strategy that ‘lifts all boats’ - not just those in some regions and for some workers.”
