The predominance of migrants from poor countries in the Global South (and increasingly the East) in our lowest paid jobs, as identified by this research, highlights the need to think about a development policy ‘at home’ as well as ‘away’.

If London is to retain its reputation as a multi-cultural society that works, our politicians, business leaders and policy makers need to address the structure of the low paid labour market as outlined in this report. The GLA has made the welcome move of setting up the Living Wage Unit and publishing a figure for the London Living Wage, but we now face the harder task of implementing measures for fairer employment in London.
