Who Cares? The Impact of Neo-liberalism on the Care Workforce in the UK

  • Olivia Insley Leeds Beckett University

Abstract

Harvey (2009) suggests that neo-liberalism has been a political-economic way of thinking since the 1970s which strives to deregulate, privatize and remove state control from many social welfare provisions. This neo-liberal doctrine has led to the privatization and marketization of the care sector in the UK and created a world where profit-making is of a higher priority than people (The Care Collective et al., 2020).
