The steady rise of self-employment since the turn of the millennium is arguably the most significant labour market trend of the past two decades. There are now some 4.77m self-employed workers plying their trade in the British labour market – nearly 15 per cent of the total workforce, up from around 12 per cent in 2001.
This report explores what the most pressing concerns and aspirations of Britain’s self-employed workers are today.
It also proposes thirty policy recommendations across six areas – savings, tax, training, working conditions, the platform economy and welfare.
