Barriers to escaping the low-pay no-pay cycle for disadvantaged parents.

Fuertes, Vanesa


Vanesa Fuertes


Poverty is a dynamic process that reflects the shifting nature of individual and
household income. Drawing on the findings of a research study supported by
the Joseph Rowntree Foundation as part of their Recurrent Poverty
programme, this paper will explore: (a) the structural barriers that
disadvantaged parents encounter when trying to escape the low-pay no-pay
cycle, defined as repeated movements into and out of low paid employment;
and (b) various potential solutions to some of the issues identified.
The study explores, in various regions of Scotland, the experience of poverty
for a number of disadvantaged parents throughout the course of their life
