Summary
This book exposes London's reliance on migrants and explores the implications of this for employment, politics and policy. Global Cities at Work draws on testimony collected from more than 800 foreign-born workers employed in low-paid jobs in London during the early years of the new century. The book calls us to take a politically-informed geographical view of our urban labour markets and to prioritise the issue of working poverty and its implications for both unemployment and community cohesion
