A recent conference organized by the JustJobs Network (JJN) in Washington, D.C. focused on charting out an agenda for "inclusive growth" – an aim that has found its way into the rhetoric of governments, development agencies, and international financial institutions.
The JustJobs Index (JJI) is a comprehensive, data-driven approach to measuring the quantity and quality of jobs around the world. The 2014 JJI ranks countries on one of the most important metrics of economic success: just job creation.
By helping to raise living standards, “Just Jobs” act as a vehicle for inclusive economic growth. Just jobs provide people with appropriate compensation, healthcare, pensions, labor rights and opportunities for economic mobility.
