Focus on London - Labour Market
Greater London Authority
30 November 2018
In 2009, the overall proportion of the London working-age population who were in work was around two percentage points below the UK figure but this does not begin to tell the story of London’s labour market. London is a complex city of extremes with significant differences between various sub-groups of population. It is important to understand which groups are doing well and those doing poorly.
This report, authored by Gareth Piggott in the Intelligence Unit, aims to shed light on some of the complexities of London’s labour market, beyond headline findings. It looks at employment rates and pay for different groups within the population and compares London with other regions and the UK average.
