This policy briefing from the Serving the Future project shares findings and policy implications at the mid-point of a three-year action research project on in-work poverty and the hospitality sector.
Key messages from the briefing include:
■ Public services such as childcare, transport and housing need to better factor in the needs of people working in the hospitality sector if in-work poverty is to be eradicated. Businesses are not able, and should not be expected, to provide services that are the responsibility of the state.
■ Hospitality employers are facing one the most challenging business environments in decades. There is more the government can do to ease the current pressures faced by the sector.
