Michael Bublé

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new edition of The Big issue that will have you feeling good! Yes, beloved crooner Michael Bublé is getting back in the swing of things. The four-time Grammy award-winner from Canada could have been an ice-hockey player or a journalist. But from a young age he knew that his singing gift was something special. He looks back on a life filled with love, music and family in a moving Letter To My Younger Self.

Fighting for the rights of tied workers

There is a severe shortage of qualified carers in Britain. Yet each year, around 20,000 domestic and care workers are brought to the UK to work in private households on a scheme that leaves them open to exploitation. We investigate how, if they were allowed to freely work, they could help to fix our social care crisis.
