The future of the left since 1884

People power

The Changing Work Centre, a joint initiative from the Fabian Society and Community, has today launched a new report which calls for a new focus on workers at the heart of industrial strategy.



People Power brings together 12 experts and MPs who address challenges to the UK’s productivity, pay stagnation and regional inequalities. Collectively, their essays show that the success of Britain’s economy in the future will depend on workers themselves – and that politicians should do more to prioritise their happiness, their skills and their ability to share in the proceeds of growth.

With a foreword by Andy Haldane, the report’s authors include Becca Antink, Alice Barnard, Joe Dromey, David Hughes, Sir Peter Lampl, Neil Lee, Chi Onwurah MP, Andrew Pakes, Roy Rickhuss CBE, Matthew Taylor, Anna Turley MP, Lorna Unwin, Tony Wilson.
