Why has the number of workers living in poverty reached a new high?
The number of workers living in poverty has reached a record high - at more than 7 million people. According to a report commissioned by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, the UK's housing crisis is fuelling growing insecurity. 3.8 million workers, or one in eight, are in poverty after an increase since the economy started recovering six years ago and a total of 7.4 million people, including 2.6 million children, are living in poverty despite being part of working households. To discuss the research in more detail, Simon was joined by Kate Bell, head of economics at the TUC.

The fall in immigration of 91,000 is predicted for a 'mid range Brexit', what does this mean?

The fall in immigration of 91,000 is predicted for a 'mid range Brexit', what does this mean?
Two issues which dominated the UK's Brexit referendum debate were immigration and the economy. But sharp falls in migration post Brexit could shrink GDP per capita by more than 3 percent. That's according to a report by NIESR fellow Jonathan Portes and NIESR research assistant Giuseppe Forte. The report, titled "The Economic Impact of Brexit-induced Reductions in Migration," found that a fall in total immigration of 91,000, would mean that GDP per capita would be 3.4% lower by 2030 than it would otherwise have been. To find out more about the report, Simon spoke to Jonathan Portes Senior Fellow at NIESR and co-author of the report.

Banks' failures are leaving people vulnerable to huge financial harm
Banks' failures are leaving people vulnerable to huge financial harm. This is according to new research from The Money and Mental Health Policy Institute, which found that over 16 million people know someone else's PIN number. Sharing PINs is even more common for carers and a lack of support by the banks leaves them using risky workarounds to help those for whom they care. To find out more, Olivia Demetriades was joined by Helen Undy of the The Money and Mental Health Policy Institute and Leah Milner, a freelance journalist who lives with bipolar.

Thousands of National Lottery players had their online accounts hacked by cyber criminals just last week. More than 100,000 people in the UK had their internet access cut after a string of service providers were hit by what is believed to be a coordinated cyber-attack. TalkTalk, one of Britain's biggest service providers, the Post Office and KCom were all affected by malware, which is spread via compromised computers. To find out what needs to be done by organisations to better protect customers' data and money, Olivia Demetriades spoke to Ryan Rubin, a managing director at Protiviti, the business management consultants.
