Abstract

Recent data has highlighted the plight of the younger workers – and those that are just entering the labour force from schools and universities – as likely to lose massively from the actions of firms that have been hit by the economic fallout from coronavirus. Their large presence in insecure and rather poorly paid jobs, many in the badly affected retail and hospitality sectors, has reduced both jobs availability and pay and it is feared that the negative impact will be felt throughout their working lives.
