Promoting Equality and Diversity through Economic Crisis (PEDEC) Workshop 3
Convenors: Al James and Kate Malleson
What are the major labour market consequences of the current economic crisis for low-waged workers and their families?
In what ways have recent waves of corporate restructuring in response to the economic downturn generated new patterns of social and spatial vulnerability amongst low-waged workers, or else reinforced long-standing inequalities?
To what extent have recent legislative changes around immigration, citizenship and welfare entitlements exacerbated or reduced the negative outcomes of the economic downturn for migrant workers in the UK (e.g. labour market racism, competition for jobs with UK nationals)?
