The Labour Market Under New Labour: the state of working Britain

Richard Dickens, Paul Gregg, Jonathan Wadsworth (eds)
Palgrave Macmillan (January 2004)

Leading experts examine, for the first time, the impact of New Labour policies on the labor market over the past five years. Looking behind the 'good news' implied by the lowest headline unemployment rates since the 1970s and by a low and stable rate of inflation, it examines the impact of policies such as the minimum wage, the New Deal, Working Family Tax Credit scheme, policies on lone parents, and changes in the education system.
