____________

The Times Round-up of the Best Non-fiction Paperbacks, 2019
The Times Best Current Affairs and Big Ideas Book of the Year, 2018

For many in modern Britain, 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 to the trials of a care worker, 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
