Even in a weakened economy the labour market remains tight, with high levels of vacancies. In December the ONS said that unemployment had risen slightly to 3.7%, but remained close to a historic low.
As a consequence of covid, changes in migration and supply chain problems we have seen a reduction in employment levels. Inflation has spiralled.
The downward pressure on wages has particularly affected a large number of professional women employed in the public sector – from nurses, doctors, radiographers to teachers and social workers. There are huge vacancy levels in the NHS.
What are the key points of change? And how will problems be resolved?
