On this site you can find resources related to my latest book ‘Living Wage’ that proposes regulatory solutions to informal an precarious work in global supply chains. It is my wish that the strategy I put forward in this book can provide the basis of the re-regulation of work on a far larger, transnational scale than has previously been the case.
