Thinking on Sunday: Hired - Six Months Undercover in Low-Wage Britain
In 2016 James Bloodworth began a journey around Britain exploring the world of low-paid work. He was shocked by what he found. Not only in some of the workplaces he visited, where a sense of fear and precarity prevailed, but also in the communities in which he lived, where communities had been destroyed and a culture had collapsed. Come hear James speak on the ‘gig economy’ and what is means to be poor and working in twenty-first century Britain at Thinking on Sunday. James Bloodworth is an English writer and the author of two books, The Myth of Meritocracy and Hired: Six Months Undercover in Low-Wage Britain. His work has appeared in the Observer, the New Statesman, the Times, the New York Review of Books and elsewhere. He is on Twitter as @J_Bloodworth. Doors 2.45pm. Start 3pm.

Space will be reserved for ticket holders. Once the room is full we cannot let anyone else in. Tickets: Brockway Room (Ground floor – accessible. Induction loop audio).
