Abstract

Research recently published by the Centre for Cities has identified the cities and towns in the UK where workers’ wages are lowest1. Of these places, many usual suspects are identified. Places like Barnsley, Doncaster and Wigan are following the EU referendum branded ‘Leaver’ towns, marking a ‘revenge of the places that don’t matter’2. Sat unexpectedly alongside them was the southern town of Worthing. A similar ‘Leaver’ town, places such as Worthing offer an interesting story in relation to dissatisfaction with the status quo.
