James Bloodworth's Hired: Six Months Undercover in Low-Wage Britain
The Times Round-up of the Best Non-fiction Paperbacks, 2019 The Times Best Current Affairs and Big Ideas Book of the Year, 2018 Zero-hours contracts and the gig economy have redefined the relationship between Companies and their workers: for many, careers are low-paid and high-risk, a series of short-term jobs with no Security and little future. In this essential expose, James Bloodworth goes undercover to investigate how working life has become a waking nightmare. From the Orwellian reach of an Amazon warehouse and the high-turnover rate of a telesales factory in Wales to the Time trials of a council care worker and the grim reality behind the glossy Uber App, Hired is a clear-eyed analysis of a divided nation and a riveting dispatch from the very frontline of low-wage Britain. 'An extraordinary and unsettling journey into the way modern Britons work. It is George Orwell's Down and Out in Paris and London for the gig-economy age' MATTHEW D'ANCONA, author of Post-Truth
