The international economic development, high house prices, low wages and a relatively low number of skilled jobs, are the main reason that the rungs grow further apart. West Somerset has the lowest social mobility in England.
Only areas as the North Somerset, South Gloucestershire and the Bath and North East Somerset have a higher level of social mobility, still only making it slightly above average. This is mainly because of good Nursery schools and a higher
number of young people in employment or training after finishing school. It is not just the poorest in society that is left out, the Middle-income is now a part of the tranches that are left behind economically.
Whole cities, towns, and counties are left behind. People from central London have the highest chance of success in life, while people that are a part of the trench that binds them as a “treadmill family” has very little chance of success.
