The essays in this collection examine labour market issues from a multidisciplinary approach, considering Italy and the wider international context. Inequality is the key analytical framework in connection with the political and academic debate spurred by the Covid 19 pandemic, which affected the less privileged in terms of health and jobs. The focus is on regional, gender and heath inequalities as well as remuneration levels and social inclusion processes as related to, among other things, access to information technology, population ageing, and the spread of informal work. The equalizing effects of employment and unemployment policies are also evaluated, and a particular attention is devoted to the provisions of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (Piano Nazionale Ripresa e Resilienza) by the Italian Government.
