The largest proportion of respondents worked in general office cleaning and other services. Cleaners with the Underground constituted the second largest share, followed by a nearly equal proportion of care workers and workers in hotel and hospitality. Workers in food processing made up the smallest share of the whole sample. Research here is in its early stages and we are not yet in a position to provide a sectoral overview of working conditions in the food processing sector.
The questionnaire data was processed using SPSS. Field notes and quotes were handled separately, and where cited here, the names of respondents have been changed in order to protect anonymity.
