Wage & Employment Dynamics online seminar: A discussion of a recent policy paper presented to the Low Pay Commission
The Wage & Employment Dynamics (WED) project, a collaboration led by researchers from the University of the West of England, aims to better understand wage inequalities in Britain. Join WED researchers Professor Alex Bryson and Dr Van Phan as they discuss a recent policy paper presented to the Low Pay Commission (LPC).
In this online seminar, Alex Bryson (UCL) and Van Phan (UWE) WED discuss the team’s recent policy paper presented to the LPC. They will report on time-series estimates of the percentage of minimum wage jobs, low paid and ‘high paid’ jobs observed. Alex and Van will also share important methodological considerations including the construction of hourly pay in the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE); the identification of ‘main’ and ‘other’ jobs; the incidence of missing data; and the use of rounding. Insight will be given into the increase in minimum wage jobs, and also an increase in the number of ‘high paid’ jobs.
When: Monday 30 November, 11.30 - 12.00.
