Now in its second edition, this reader presents a critical examination of the changing structure of work in Canada and abroad. Its focus is on the role of Canadian labour in the globalized world. Contributors include David Livingstone, Pat Armstrong, Meg Luxton, Dave Broad, and other prominent Canadian scholars. Each of the seven themed sections begins with a contextual introduction by Vivian Shalla and concludes with critical thinking questions and suggestions for further reading.
New to this edition:
- All new content: 14 up-to-date chapters reflecting the current state of research on work in Canada
- New section on informal care work
- More workplace-based chapters that provide a view “from the shop floor”
"This book will make an important contribution, filling a gap in the scholarly publications on work in this country. This is an exciting collection of readings that will convey some of the most pressing issues that now confront us as students, workers, and citizens."— Pamela Sugiman, McMaster University
