Hired: Six Months Undercover in Low-Wage Britain by James Bloodworth

Potent, disturbing and revelatory... [Bloodworth] sets out to see something we should know more about than we do, and he tells the story of what he found well.
-- Evening Standard
A very discomforting book, no matter what your politics might be... very good -- Sunday Times
James Bloodworth is one of the best writers on politics around– Spectator
An extraordinary and unsettling journey into the way modern Britons work. It is Down and Out In Paris and London for the gig economy age.-- Matthew D'Ancona, Guardian columnist and bestselling author of Post-Truth
A wake-up call to us all. A very graphic and authentic journey exposing the hard and miserable working life faced by too many people living in Britain today.-- Margaret Hodge, MP, former Chair, Public Accounts Committee
Whatever you think of the political assertions in this book - and I disagree with many of them - this is an important investigation into the reality of low-wage Britain. Whether you are on the Right, Left or Centre, anybody who believes in solidarity and social justice should read this book.-- Nick Timothy, former Chief of Staff to Theresa May
A tautly written expose of the swindle of the gig economy and a call to arms.-- Nick Cohen, Observer journalist and author of What's Left?
I emerged from James Bloodworth's quietly devastating and deeply disturbing book convinced that the 'gig economy' is simply another way in which the powerful are enabled to oppress the disadvantaged-- D. J. Taylor, author of Orwell: The Biography
A truly devastating examination of the vulnerable human underbelly of Britain's labour market, shining a bright light on the unjust and exploitative practices that erode the morale and living standards of working-class communities. -- Frank Field, MP
James Bloodworth pulls back the carpet and exposes the rotten floorboards of Britain's low wage, insecure and exploitative economy, describing living and working conditions that Dickens would recognise. A wake-up call to our political elites to genuinely tackle the gross inequality at the heart of our society.-- Wes Streeting, MP

In 1973?
Todays gig economy has many parallels with this book, that was written 100 years ago. Book is free on Kindle.
