The Future Of U K Employment

Recommended Posts

Analysis of a recent report on work in 2030:

The UK is at a crossroads – one which requires us to think about the fundamental nature and direction of our economy. Are we taking the high road – of higher skills and value-added employment – or the low road – trying to compete primarily on low cost?

I wonder how low home ownership will fall.

Where are the thousands in low paying admin jobs going to end up?

There are some big go digital 'projects' underway.

How much did Admin take up the slack from the lost factory workforce?

The competition v the couple of hundred thousand a year low paid immigrant workers will really start showing up in around 2 years time!

Don't make the mistake of thinking all migrants are low paid, some of them are very skilled with better language than some UK natives and they are walking into very well paid jobs.

State the obvious, but don't deny the fact that thousands are! Moving on from your distraction technique...

Forgot the competition side of it, where are all the thousand admin workers going to end up?

How long can the 2 billion (borrowed) a week hide the failing in the productivity of the U.K?

Won't the couple of hundred thousand immigrants a year provide demand and create jobs?

Don't make the mistake of thinking all migrants are low paid, a tiny fraction some of them are very skilled with better language than some UK natives and they are walking into very well paid jobs.

Edited for you so that you don't need to do it later.

The big issue we need to tackle right now for skilled work is to incentivise and force (carrot and stick) employers to train employees. Practically all they wish to take on right now are employees that have done the job that they are trying to fill - just somewhere else. This is a trend that has been growing for about 20 years but the financial crisis has made it much worse.

It's not a general skills issue per se that is at the root of this, but rather specific skills and capabilities that can only come from the experience of doing that job. So when employers say they can't find the skilled employees they need, they mean to say they can't find someone who has done that exact specific job before at one of their competitors, not that they can't find individuals with the general skills necessary to do the job with a bit of training. This is why the job adverts all require x years of experience - it's just daft, they are cutting their own throats in the long term.
