Product Description

The conditions of harsh worker exploitation, an artifact of an earlier phase of laisse faire capitalism, were presumed to have been mitigated in the developed West during the golden age of Keynesianism. Appearances, however, can be deceiving. Across the globe, neoliberalism has thoroughly unmasked ‘capitalism with a human face’ bringing to the fore a logic that celebrates the growth of deep inequality, aggressive social exclusion, and a tolerance for the widespread existence of the un(der)employed poor. The growth of employment precarity and the need for a living wage by large sections of the population is the focus of this volume. Using quantitative and qualitative approaches and informed by critical conceptual analyses, contributors explore the lived experiences and broader implications of mounting social inequalities in vivid detail. The contributors not only deconstruct the paradox of low wage work under neoliberal capitalism, but put forward ideas on what can be done about it.
