Abstract

The number of people in the UK working on zero-hours contracts has risen sharply over the past decade, from 186,000 people, or 0.6% of the working population, to 896,000 or 2.7%. This sharp expansion of the gig economy, and concerns over workers’ rights in the Brexit debate, have prompted warnings that the UK is being dragged into a “race to the bottom”. But what is a race to the bottom? And are these concerns justified?
