Description

Despite high employment, low wages and job insecurity leave many families at or below the poverty line. The career instability previously experienced mostly by blue-collar workers has spread to middle managers and high-level executives caught in the rapid movement of capital and technologies. In light of these facts and the anxiety about employment prevalent in our society, Aronowitz argues for a new social contract between employers and workers.
