The scheme for full employment

Author: Magnus Mills
Publisher: London : Bloomsbury, 2011.
Edition/Format:   Print book : Fiction : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The Scheme was designed to provide an honest wage for an honest day's labour. Men driving identical, rust-resistant Univans deliver Univan parts to strategically spaced warehouses. Simple, self-perpetuating and efficient, it seems destined to last forever. But when some drivers begin leaving early and developing delivery sidelines, the workforce is divided into two camps: Flat-Dayers and Early Swervers.
