Description

Michael Millward and Abigail Marks Professor of the Future of Work at Newcastle University discuss a quotation from the 17th Century French philosopher Blaise Pascal about the benefits of being perceived to be of a higher social class. They examine the reasons why in an increasingly equal world, discrimination on the basis of social class persists in the UK as a way of defining people, and investigate what both individuals and organisations can do to level the playing field.
