Report concerned with the impact of future changes in employment structures and pay patterns on income inequality and poverty.
The report ﬁndings suggest that:
• relative poverty and inequality are set to rise by 2020 as a result of changes to the structure of employment and future changes in the tax and beneﬁt system
• absolute poverty is likely to be aﬀ ected very little by those changes
• to mitigate increases in poverty and inequality, a very precise and targeted approach to policy, focusing on households in poverty, will be required.
