The Ipswich project and some first results are presented in Science Connection n° 53, published by Belspo. The article provides a general overview of the situation of the working poor in Belgium in comparison to the surrounding countries, introduces the sectoral differences in wage inequality, the poverty risks of different worker types, and the inequalities between natives and foreigners. It concludes with a warning: the risk of in-work poverty may very quickly increase when labour market policies undergo fundamental changes, as is often called for.
