Living with London’s OlympicsEmployment and Capital Gains

Living with London’s Olympics: Employment and Capital Gains [In this chapter, I look at Newham’s employment realities, perceptions, and possibilities and consider how these were affected by Olympic delivery. In particular, I shall explore the practicalities and assumptions that underpinned the notion that Olympic delivery would provide a large number of employment opportunities for local people. I shall then consider Newham’s ability to benefit from the employment opportunities that were created by the Olympics, offering an evaluation as to whether these should have ever been considered as beneficial for or accessible to the majority of Newham residents. Ultimately, this chapter examines the impact that localized perceptions of a lack of Olympic delivery employment opportunities for “local people” had upon the “legacy” narrative and the overall perceptions of the 2012 Olympic Games. Let me start with an overview of Newham’s employment demographics.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[In this chapter, I look at Newham’s employment realities, perceptions, and possibilities and consider how these were affected by Olympic delivery. In particular, I shall explore the practicalities and assumptions that underpinned the notion that Olympic delivery would provide a large number of employment opportunities for local people. I shall then consider Newham’s ability to benefit from the employment opportunities that were created by the Olympics, offering an evaluation as to whether these should have ever been considered as beneficial for or accessible to the majority of Newham residents. Ultimately, this chapter examines the impact that localized perceptions of a lack of Olympic delivery employment opportunities for “local people” had upon the “legacy” narrative and the overall perceptions of the 2012 Olympic Games. Let me start with an overview of Newham’s employment demographics.]
