Political Economy of Labor Repression in the United States

Andrew Kolin

Political Economy of Labor Repression in the United States by Andrew KolinThis book explores the political economy of labor repression, expanding the meaning of repression by looking at the relation of politics to economics. It explains how and why this relation leads to the repression of labor and considers how labor repression develops over time from the social relation of capital and labor, and how this is expressed over the course of US history.

Black Americans and Organized Labor: A New History

Paul D. Moreno

Black Americans and Organized Labor: A New History by Paul D. Moreno

In Black Americans and Organized Labor, Paul D. Moreno offers a bold reinterpretation of the role of race and racial discrimination in the American labor movement. Moreno applies insights of the law-and-economics movement to formulate a powerfully compelling labor-race theorem of elegant simplicity: White unionists found that race was a convenient basis on which to do what unions do -- control the labor supply. Not racism pure and simple but "the economics of discrimination" explains historic black absence and under-representation in unions.

Moreno's sweeping reexamination stretches from the...

When Good Jobs Go Bad: Globalization, De-unionization, and Declining Job Quality in the North American Auto Industry

Jeffrey S. Rothstein

When Good Jobs Go Bad: Globalization, De-unionization, and Declining Job Quality in the North American Auto Industry by Jeffrey S. RothsteinIn When Good Jobs Go Bad, Jeffrey Rothstein looks at the impact of globalization on workers in the North American auto industry, revealing that globalization has had a deleterious effect on even the most valued of blue-collar jobs. Rothstein shows how the consolidation of the Mexican and U.S.-Canadian auto industries, the expanding number of foreign automakers in North America, and the spread of lean production have all undermined organized labor and harmed workers.

Veiled Employment: Islamism and the Political Economy of Women's Employment in Iran

Roksana Bahramitash

Veiled Employment: Islamism and the Political Economy of Women's Employment in Iran by Roksana BahramitashThe popularity of neoliberal economic policies is based, in part, on the argument that the liberalization of markets promotes growth and increases employment opportunities for women. Although the latest research bears this out, it also presents a grim portrait of the state of women's employment. Approximately seventy percent of those living on less than a dollar a day are women or girls. In Veiled Employment, the editors seek to examine these stark disparities, focusing on the evolving role of women's employment in Iran. Based on empirical field research in Iran, the contributors' essays document...

Unfree Labour? Struggles of Migrant and Immigrant Workers in Canada

Aziz Choudry

Unfree Labour? Struggles of Migrant and Immigrant Workers in Canada by Aziz ChoudryOver the past decade, Canada has experienced considerable growth in labour migration. Moreover, temporary labour migration has replaced permanent immigration as the primary means by which people enter Canada. Utilizing the rhetoric of maintaining competitiveness, Canadian employers and the state have ushered in an era of neoliberal migration alongside an agenda of austerity flowing from capitalist crisis. Labour markets have been restructured to render labour more flexible and precarious, and in Canada as in other high-income capitalist labour markets, employers are relying on migrant and immigrant...

Software, Infrastructure, Labor: A Media Theory of Logistical Nightmares

Ned Rossiter

Software, Infrastructure, Labor: A Media Theory of Logistical Nightmares by Ned Rossiter

Infrastructure makes worlds. Software coordinates labor. Logistics governs movement. These pillars of contemporary capitalism correspond with the materiality of digital communication systems on a planetary scale. Ned Rossiter theorizes the force of logistical media to discern how subjectivity and labor, economy and society are tied to the logistical imaginary of seamless interoperability. Contingency haunts logistical power. Technologies of capture are prone to infrastructural breakdown, sabotage, and failure. Strategies of evasion, anonymity, and disruption unsettle regimes of calculation and...

From Accidents to Zero: A Practical Guide to Improving Your Workplace Safety Culture

Andrew Sharman

From Accidents to Zero: A Practical Guide to Improving Your Workplace Safety Culture by Andrew Sharman

As leaders increasingly understand the importance of good safety practice to support their business objectives, safety and health practitioners develop better tools and solutions. However, there is still a gulf between these two groups where engagement, communication and shared understanding can be found lacking. From Accidents to Zero opens up the field of safety culture and breaks it down into bite-sized pieces to facilitate new, critical thought and inspire practical action.

Based on the concept of creating safety, as opposed to just preventing accidents, each of the 26 chapters in this user-friendly...

Scott London

The Changing World of Work: What Should We Ask of Higher Education? by Scott London

The Changing World of Work: What Should We Ask of Higher Education?

There is a pervasive anxiety in America about the future of higher education. Spiraling costs combined with seismic changes in the American workplace raise questions about whether a bachelor's degree is still worth the cost. In a recent cover story, Newsweek magazine asked: "Is College a Lousy Investment?" For a growing number of Americans, the answer appears to be yes.

Today's students accumulate an average of almost $30,000 in debt by the time they graduate. They will go into a job market that looks especially bleak for young...
