I know, when you’re mouth feels like it’s been dragged through nettles and your head is thumping harder than a hooker on overtime, it can be tough to consider thinking. Sunday is a day of rest and hangovers, right? Not at Conway Hall. Their programme of talks is exciting and inspirational no matter what day of the week. Coming up at this week’s Thinking on Sunday, presented by Conway Hall Ethical Society, is James Bloodworth, author of Hired – Six Months Undercover in Low-Wage Britain. In 2016 he began a journey around Britain exploring the world of low-paid work and the gig economy. He was shocked by the workplaces he visited, the poor health that work patterns triggered, and the breaking down of communities and culture. In this session he speaks about what is means to be poor and working in twenty-first century Britain. Heavy but important stuff.
