What is sugar daddy capitalism?

Posted on: Thu 17 Jan 2019

Disgraced Nationals MP Andrew Broad has been in the news for using a sugar-daddy app to find paid romantic company while travelling. These actions seem to contradict his party’s platform of upholding family values.

But is there something deeper to this story than simply rank hypocrisy and scandal?

Professor Peter Fleming from the University of Technology Sydney has published many works which investigate how working lives are affected my modern technologies and workplace structures, including his soon to be published book, Sugar Daddy Capitalism.

Professor Fleming joined Nick and Ian on Breakfast to discuss the issue.
