The UK languishes at the bottom of most productivity league tables.  We seem to be a low skill, low performing country.  Lots of ‘good’ jobs have been taken out of the economy and replaced with part-time, low skill employment. 

The UK must start to invest in skills – and skill-based employment sectors.  Otherwise it will continue its ‘race to the bottom’ – lots of jobs but no satisfying employment or careers.

Will someone please tell George Osborne?
