Abstract

Yesterday, the Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission released a report which finds that working-class applicants are at a disadvantage and recruiters use ‘poshness tests’. Here, Daniel Laurison and Sam Friedman discuss the report and their own research which fed into the study and call for further research which explores the ‘class ceiling’.
