The Bristol Cable

Professor Guy Standing of the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) spoke to The Bristol Cable about his new book The Precariat Charter and the key issues of a new unstable and precarious workforce.

In this interview, Guy Standing argues that “The Precariat” is a newly emerging class of people for whom instability and poor conditions of employment are defining features.

Placing his thoughts in light of changes to the structure of the global economy, he also makes the link with the unprecedented waves of uprisings across different parts of the world and how, despite insecurity, The Precariat might change the world.

The views expressed in this interview are those of Guy Standing and do not necessarily reflect The Bristol Cable’s.

Public interest journalism is expensive, takes time and can be risky.

But powering Bristol’s media co-op isn’t.
