Creative Labour provides an insight into the unique employment issues affecting workers in film, television, theatre, arts, music, radio and new media.
In the UK alone, more than 1 million people work in the creative industries, generating billions of pounds in exports each year. These workers have to contend with elastic working hours, employment and promotion uncertainty and vigorous competition for each role. Creative Labour offers a contemporary perspective on a fascinating area of study and a rapidly growing area in developed economies.
