The New Serfdom: The Triumph of Conservative Ideas and How to Defeat Them...
Great Britain is one of the wealthiest, most successful nations in the world. Why, then, do so many people feel short-changed?

Meanwhile exploitative workplace practices have created a new serfdom, leaving many people trapped in unfulfilling, underpaid work.
At a time of huge political upheaval and ever-increasing inequality, this powerful new book asks: how can we build a successful economy, powered by a happy and productive workforce that benefits everyone in the twenty-first century?
