Example text

This culture of working ever longer hours in Britain now means that one in nine employees work more than a sixty hour week; and this tendency is reflected elsewhere in the developed world (Watson, 2003). The ratio of time spent in leisure activities to that spent in work activities varies from person to person. It follows that the amount of time a person has for leisure is often inversely proportional to the time they spend in work activities, since there are only 24 hours in each day. Therefore, for example, a factory worker who works a 12-hour shift, and spends an hour travelling each way, has little remaining time for leisure.

For example: r a person who is workless is someone without a job r people who hold demonstrations about ‘the right to work’ are really protesting because they want a job (Jahoda, 1982) r at the heart of the current British Government’s modernisation agenda, Welfare to Work is aimed at getting more people into employment r the condition known as work-related stress is actually a negative response to employment, rather than to work itself. This text makes no attempt to untangle these complexities, even were it possible to do so.

Within the UK there is currently a rapidly expanding migrant labour force, mainly originating from eastern European countries. While many work legitimately in this country, and are therefore protected by legal safeguards, there are others who work illegally, and this group are therefore at greater risk because of their potential for exploitation.
