"Guy Standing's book ' The New Dangerous Class' first published in 2011 discusses " the emerging class of people facing insecurity, moving in and out of precarious work that gives meaning to their lives.." (books. google. co. nz)
Amongst this group are people who have studied at a tertiary level, yet are doing jobs that they are overqualified for. They carry large debt from study and perform jobs that are temporary. They are part of the 'Gig Economy' and are usually locked out of the housing market due to their precarious job situation... debt, and discriminated against by banks due to their spending proclivities".
