"This is a politics of time that goes way beyond regulations on labour hours, working conditions and campaigns for a four-day labour week."
Guy Standing is a Professorial Research Associate at SOAS University of London and co-founder of the Basic Income Earth Network. He is best known as a long-standing and prominent advocate of Universal Basic Income, but he is also responsible for redefining and revitalizing the term ‘precariat’ which describes a new emerging social class suffering from job insecurity as well as identity insecurity.
Standing's recent work has explored the politics of time and how to reclaim leisure in an age of uncertianty.
