This working paper calls for a new policy framework — social inclusion — that assesses the extent to which low-paid workers fall behind the rest of the workforce, not only in terms of wages and income, but also with respect to health, education, housing, skills, advancement and opportunity. The authors discuss how the concept of social inclusion is used in the United Kingdom and how it might be adapted for use in the United States.
