The Government repeatedly claims that employment rates have risen and more people are in employment than ever before. But too many of these jobs are low paid, with limited prospects.
Many employers of low paid workers do not provide training, so their workers are trapped in low income work.
I asked the Minister for Employment about plans to help people who work in more than one low income job get support to secure training and development.
Many of my constituents work more than one low-income jobs, the Department for Work and Pensions must develop a strategy to help them secure, higher income work.
See my question to the Minister here.
