This report presents findings from a unique research project aimed at establishing what low-paid workers in Scotland value as important when it comes to ‘decent work’. While recognizing variations for specific groups, the research has identified remarkable consistency in respondents’ priorities for decent work.

There is a significant job to be done to improve the quality of work which is available in Scotland. However, by ensuring the priorities of low-paid workers significantly inform changes to policy and practice, Scotland can make major progress towards the delivery of decent work for all.
