This eye-opening work delves into the gig economy as journalist James Bloodworth spends six months undercover in low-wage jobs.

"Why Can’t We All Just Get Along" is a poignant memoir that delves into the state of public discourse in Britain and the world today. Through personal anecdotes from his career in politics and the media, the author laments the increasing disrespect and intolerance in society. However, he offers hope, suggesting ways we can emerge from tribalism and division to become more respectful to each other and those who govern us.
