The pay of Britain’s workers has rarely been out of the news in the past decade. The unprecedented squeeze on earnings that followed the financial crisis, a new minimum wage for those 25 and over, and the arrival of the ‘top 1 per cent’ in the years leading up to the financial crisis have all rightly grabbed headlines.
Another area of concern has been the idea that the UK is experiencing a ‘hollowing’ out of the pay distribution as offshoring and automation diminish the number of mid-paid jobs.
This briefing presents new research that shows that some hollowing out has occurred, but only in relation to men.
