Book Description

 The Times Round-up of the Best Non-fiction Paperbacks, 2019

The Times Best Current Affairs and Big Ideas Book of the Year, 2018

In this essential exposé, James Bloodworth goes undercover to investigate how, for many, 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
