Labour Market Realities: Insecurity, Stress and Brexit

This is the second annual CLASS report on the state of the UK labour market. It includes a major worker survey which finds the cost of living gap is leading to longer working hours, stress and debt.

Britain is more stressed and overworked than ever with one in three workers unable to keep up with the basic cost of living and many turning to payday loans and other forms of credit. This is set to get worse with Brexit which a quarter of British workers say it will impact on their own job.
