The occurrence of Brexit in the UK economy is already having an effect on the Job market. This is mainly due to uncertainty caused by the UK’s volatile political situation and no full direction by the Brexit campaigners on how the UK’s economy can move forward. The UK job market had not fully recovered from the effects of the recession and added with this uncertainty from leaving the EU, employers aren’t willing to employ workers on a permanent basis as they do not know the long term cost. Therefore, the unemployment rate in the UK is rising but not as drastic in comparison to the financial crisis of 2009. In this essay, I am going to analyse the current labour market in the UK looking at indicators such as; wages, regions, gender and so on with the focus on the Banking and Finance Sector.

“The very turmoil of the streets has something repulsive, something against which human nature rebels” [Friedrich Engels, The Condition of the Working Class in England, 36].

Thus, reform is necessary to redress the concerns of lack of legal certainty in relation to this area of the law.

During the first Industrial Revolution, many social standards of the community were starting to change. Since there were new spinning and weaving machines available, the textile mill factories were built to increase their profit. The people who established these mills hired children and women to decrease their labor cost by paying them low wages and having poor working conditions for them as well. The Labor force impacted American culture through various means such as the child labor conditions, women in the factories, and the immigrants working in the factories.
The “Great Recession” is commonly used to explain the massive economic contraction that occurred in the United States during the fourth quarter of 2007. However, the actions of the United States spanned to other nations, leaving massive effect on the global economy.
