Worker vulnerability induced by neoliberal globalisation is affecting an increasing number of workers around the world. Crossing the Divide: Precarious Work and the Future of Labour (edited by Edward Webster and Akua Britwum) compare precarious work in India, Ghana and South Africa. The book shows how innovative organisational strategies are emerging in the Global South to bridge the widening divide between the formal and informal economies.
