Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

The decline in middle skill jobs and increase in low skills jobs ('hollowing out') is undermining attempts to increase productivity as well as threatening social mobility and 'inclusive growth'. This IPPI Policy Brief outlines what's happening in the Scottish labour market and how a greater policy emphasis on how this issue might be tackled, especially in industries and sectors with large low skill workforces.
