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 exposé, 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- age Britain.
