Slaves Into Workers: Emancipation and Labor in Colonial Sudan

Ahmad Alawad Sikainga

Slaves Into Workers: Emancipation and Labor in Colonial Sudan by Ahmad Alawad SikaingaIn the Sudan, native Sudanese slaves served Sudanese masters until the region was conquered by the Turks, who practiced slavery on an institutional scale. When the British took over the Sudan in 1898, they officially emancipated the slaves, yet found it impossible to replace their labor in the country's economy. This pathfinding study explores the process of emancipation and the development of wage labor in the Sudan under British colonial rule. Ahmad Sikainga focuses on the fate of ex-slaves in Khartoum and on the efforts of the colonial government to transform them into wage laborers. He probes...

Prying Open Fortress Europe: The Turn to Sectoral Labor Migration

Alexander Caviedes

Prying Open Fortress Europe: The Turn to Sectoral Labor Migration by Alexander CaviedesGlobalization has increased international migratory pressures, but in advanced industrialized countries entrenched social interests eager to maintain restrictive policies make it difficult for governments to encourage mass migration. This book explains how countries in Western Europe have responded to this challenge by establishing sector-specific labor migration policies that are capable of managing migration toward industries with particular labor shortages while still offering the semblance of managed migration necessary to make such policy politically palatable.

The China Price

Alexandra Harney

The China Price by Alexandra HarneyA landmark eyewitness exposé of how China's factory economy competes for Western business by selling out its workers, its environment, and its future In The China Price, acclaimed Financial Times correspondent Alex Harney uncovers the truth about how China is able to offer such amazingly low prices to the rest of the world. What she has discovered is a brutal, Hobbesian world in which intense pricing pressure from Western companies combines with ubiquitous corruption and a lack of transparency to exact an unseen and unconscionable toll in human misery and environmental damage. In a way, Harney...

A Woman's Wage: Historical Meanings and Social Consequences

Alice Kessler-Harris

A Woman's Wage: Historical Meanings and Social Consequences by Alice Kessler-HarrisIn this updated edition of a pathbreaking classic, Alice Kessler-Harris explores the meanings of women's wages in the United States in the twentieth and twenty first centuries, focusing on three issues that capture the transformation of women's roles: the battle over minimum wage for women, which exposes the relationship between family ideology and workplace demands; the argument concerning equal pay for equal work, which challenges gendered patterns of self-esteem and social organization; and the debate over comparable worth, which seeks to incorporate traditionally female values into new work...

Alyssa Katz

The Influence Machine: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Corporate Capture of American Life by Alyssa KatzAn illuminating history and groundbreaking investigation tracing how a single trade organization turned itself into the most dangerous political weapon in America When Americans hear the words "Chamber of Commerce," many still think of the local business associations that spruce up Main Streets and sponsor Little League teams around the country. But the United States Chamber of Commerce is a different animal altogether. The Chamber was originally founded to give big business a voice during the long—and now almost inconceivable—period in American history that saw the rise of workers' rights,...

Fast Boat to China: Corporate Flight and the Consequences of Free Trade Lessons from Shanghai

Andrew Ross

Fast Boat to China: Corporate Flight and the Consequences of Free Trade Lessons from Shanghai by Andrew RossMost Americans today are aware that jobs are being outsourced to China, India, and other nations at an alarming rate. From factory jobs to white-collar, high-tech positions, the exporting of labor is one of the most controversial issues in America.

Yet few people know much about the other end — about the people who are actually working these jobs and how their own lives have been throw into tumult by these new economic forces. Andrew Ross spent a year in China, interviewing local employees and their managers in Taiwan, Shanghai, and the far western provinces. In this engaging and informative...

The Case against the Davis-Bacon Act: Fifty-Four Reasons for Repeal

Armand J. Thieblot

The Case against the Davis-Bacon Act: Fifty-Four Reasons for Repeal by Armand J. Thieblot

The Davis-Bacon Act is a United States federal law that established the requirement that prevailing wages must be paid on public works projects. In this book, Armand J. Thieblot argues that the law was passed under false pretenses and based on flawed economic logic. Despite this, the law continues to expand in scope and increase in cost. The act is supported by a substantial bureaucracy within the Department of Labor that has resisted all efforts at substantive modernization or reform. Today, the Davis-Bacon Act is the bedrock upon which stands one of the last bastions of private unionization...

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...

High-Skilled Immigration in a Global Labor Market

Barry Chiswick

High-Skilled Immigration in a Global Labor Market by Barry ChiswickRecent U.S. immigration reform proposals have focused almost exclusively on regulating the population of low-skilled foreign workers. High-Skilled Immigration in a Global Labor Market contends that policymakers should focus more on attracting immigrants with exclusive skill sets-professional, technical, and managerial (PTM) workers. PTM workers positively impact the economy by expanding production capability, increasing the growth rate of total factor productivity, and enhancing international competitiveness. Barry R. Chiswick and his coauthors examine the policies established by other OECD...
