According to this report politicians have found it very difficult to address the full range of issues relevant to the world of work. Questions about the quality of work for the majority have not featured on the political agenda for some considerable time. Today the argument is between those who are in favour of regulated labour markets and those who favour deregulation; essentially the same discussion that has been running for the past twenty-five years. There is an emerging narrative derived from the story about the knowledge economy, the demand for improvements in productivity and performance and the development of work life balance policies. But this has yet to be articulated as a clear account of 'good work' by any of the political parties.
