Following the huge success of Crap Towns, loafer's bible the Idler presents the even funnier Crap Jobs.Drawing on the resources of the Idler's hudely witty audience, Crap Jobs is a side-splitting trawl through the worst job experiences ever. From the North Sea Ferry cabin cleaner to the artificial chicken inseminator, read tales of degrading exploitation and humilitation, of bosses from hell and co-workers from purgatory. A unique combination of mordant humour and biting social satire, Crap Jobs tells of stress, misery and rebellion in the darkest most satanic warehouses, offices, call centres, hospitals, restaurants and factories in the UK.
