The New Poverty

by Stephen Armstrong
£9.99   paperback  Verso Books (2018)

The New Poverty by Stephen Armstrong We are living in an age of unprecedented poverty. But who are the new poor? And what hope do they have?
 
The New Poverty is the story of an unreported Britain, betrayed by politicians and left stranded by the retreat of the welfare state. Today, 13 million people live below the poverty line in the UK. According to a 2017 report, one in five children belong to that number. The new poor are more often than not in work, living precariously, and enduring austerity policies that make affordable good-quality housing, good health, and secure employment increasingly unimaginable.
 
Armstrong asks what long-term impact this will have on Brexit Britain and whether there are any solutions.
