Key trends in the global labour market since the 2008 global financial crisis highlight a current and coming crisis of indecent work. Around the world insecure and precarious work is increasing, wages are stagnant and declining, and severe exploitation within global supply chains including forced labour , human trafficking, and modern slavery is growing in prevalence. Furthermore, the mechanisms to protect workers are weak and are increasingly being shaped by private actors in the global economy, and not by states. These are all signs of an escalating global labour and employment crisis. To prevent another economic crisis, the spread and normalisation of indecent work must be addressed.
