Work, wages and wellbeing in the Scottish labour market

Closed 21 Aug 2015

Overview

The Scottish Parliament Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee has launched an inquiry into work, wages and wellbeing in the Scottish labour market.

Throughout the course of the inquiry, we'll be exploring the contrasting qualities of different jobs and the impact of low wages and temporary / insecure jobs on the Scottish economy.

We're hoping to find out:

  • What makes a job 'good' or 'bad'?
  • Have jobs become better or worse since 2008?
  • What effect might low quality / low pay jobs have on the economy?
  • What the health impacts of low quality jobs might be?
  • What can the Scottish Government and public policy makers do to improve job quality in Scotland?

 

The Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee would like to hear from individuals, employers, self-employed people, voluntary organisations, representative bodies, local authorities and unions.
