We asked 10 politicians and policy experts how to get family incomes to grow the way they used to.
GLORIA DE PIERO MP: Labour must not only speak for the working class, it must speak from the working class too.
ANDREW HARROP: Labour must not see the world through a middle-class lens.
CARL PARSONS: Policymakers are letting disadvantaged, low-income families down by side-lining child poverty and switching attention to social mobility.
ED DAVIE: We need to renew our commitment to eradicate poverty.
We read with interest Jon Lawrence’s critique of Family & Kinship in East London - the oft-cited seminal ethnographic study of working class life in Bethnal Green authored by our founder Michael Young and Peter Willmott.
