The Living Hours Index provides an important new perspective on insecure work, building on previous research by the Living Wage Foundation and others on the scale and impact of insecure and unstable work. We know that some workers benefit from having more flexible working arrangements where it is their choice. However, our polling shows that irregular working hours often lead to insecure and precarious working practices which negatively impact employees.
