Since defining culture is closely related to inequalities, as academics we should not reproduce these distinctions like the survey does. The book combines the first large-scale study of social mobility into cultural and creative jobs, hundreds of interviews with creative workers, and a detailed analysis of secondary datasets.

This book presents the rich fabric of language, clothing, food, and architecture which forms the diverse religious, political, cultural and ethnic identities of humanity. The third core argument is that negative aspects of cultural work that seem ubiquitous – for example, periods of working for free and navigating a freelance lifestyle – are in fact experienced very differently by different people, where they can be seen as freeing and exciting for people who are better-resourced and fit the “somatic norm” of a White middle-class man, but crushing inevitabilities for people with less money to fall back on and those who don’t fit that stereotype.Across the world we can see lockdown and reopening presenting significant challenges to those parts of the cultural sector dependent on visitors and on audiences.

Culture Is Bad for You posits that absolute mobility has gone down, but also that the labour market has changed: there are less ‘traditional’ working class jobs now than there were in the 1960s, which means that relative mobility has remained the same.

For women of colour who are socially mobile, the experience of cultural occupations and cultural institutions is of an often hostile environment.

The whole discourse became how politicians had made it impossible for working class people to get creative jobs.
