New research reveals significant pay gap between Luton and Cambridge

A new report has revealed a significant gap in what people are earning in Luton and Cambridge.

The research from the Centre for Cities says that there's been a rise in low-pay positions in Luton over the last decade, while the opposite's true in Cambridge.

It's being blamed on a decline in mid-level jobs such as admin, which experts say could make it harder for people to progress into better paid roles.

"The towns and cities that have been most affected by globalisation and technological change have seen quite significant falls in those intermediate level jobs.

They've seen shifts towards low pay, rather than high-pay occupations and that's the case in Luton."
