The paper addresses the following issues:
- The extent of the problem – how do we define low wages and where are they most prevalent?
- Low wages in Scotland – what are the specific issues here?
- Those most at risk – who are they and why are they stuck in the low wage trap?
- Change in the labour market – how will this affect the extent of low paid work?
- Tackling the problem – what has worked previously and what can we learn from this?
