Getting Scotland to Work

On Wednesday, the Chancellor will deliver his budget against a backdrop of high unemployment and widespread worry about the
state of the economy. But should we be looking to politicians to create jobs and get Scotland back to work? BBC Scotland's Business and Economy Editor, Douglas Fraser, has travelled around the country, speaking to some of those who are struggling to find jobs. He's also been meeting some of the companies who could be creating jobs. What kind of people are they looking for? And what kinds of skills do modern workers need? Douglas travels to India, to visit the country's booming business processing sector, where he finds that technology, migration and globalisation pose huge challenges for even the most skilled and willing job hunters.

BBC Scotland Investigates: Getting Scotland to Work is a provocative look at the challenges of the modern jobs market.
