We all define ourselves by our profession – but what if our job was demeaning and poorly paid? James Bloodworth spent six months taking on the country’s worst jobs. He lives on the meagre proceeds and discovers the anxieties and hopes of those he encounters. His book Hired is a fascinating window onto a world that Britain’s London-centric media rarely visits. In A Basic Income Handbook, Annie Miller explores the idea of basic income and what it would mean to implement. Using extensive economic data. Miller starts off from a broad, existential position, outlining why the current system is no longer suitable for the times and needs to change, giving examples of pilot schemes around the world.
