It’s no secret that the nature of work itself has changed significantly in recent years. What’s Wrong with Work? looks at three increasingly important types of labor—ranging from IT jobs to environmental work to the rise of the gig economy—with a particular focus on issues of gender, race, and class. Pettinger examines what these jobs mean within current neoliberal frameworks and theorizes their futures in a world of rising automation and potential ecological catastrophe. Accessible and engaging, What’s Wrong with Work? ultimately argues for our collective responsibility to address and rectify unfair and inhumane working conditions.  
Review Quotes
Andrew Smith, University of Bradford School of Management
“An important, interesting and timely book that critically examines current transformations in work and employment. A useful contribution, particularly around emerging forms of green work, IT work, and the ‘gig’ economy.”
