The Oxfam briefing paper looks into work and its relation to wealth. Specifically, the paper focuses on if/how global economy is conducive to accumulation of wealth and how this reflects on workers. Gender divide is a specific concern of the paper that points to exploitation of gender inequalities for/in the current set up.
