Internal labor markets and manpower analysis by Peter B Doeringer( Book )

52 editions published between 1970 and 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using data gathered in a series of interviews with management and union officials in over 75 companies between 1964 and 1969, this report analyzes the concept of the internal labor market and describes its relevance for federal manpower policy. The management interviews, which were mostly in personnel, industrial engineering, and operations areas of manufacturing companies, were supplemented by data on the disadvantaged provided by civil rights, poverty, and manpower agencies. The report utilizes the framework established in the study to show that the internal market does not imply inefficiency and may represent an improvement in dealing with structural unemployment. (Bh)
Birds of passage : migrant labor and industrial societies by Michael J Piore( Book )

34 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in English and German and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Birds of Passage presents an unorthodox analysis of migration ion to urban industrial societies from underdeveloped rual areas. It argues that such migrations are a continuing feature of industrial societies and that they are generated by forces inherent in the nature of industrial economies. It explains why conventional economic theory finds such migrations so difficult to comprehend, and challenges a set of older assumptions that supported the view that these migrations were beneficial to both sending and receiving societies. Professor Piore seriously questions whether migration actually relieves population pressure and rural unemployment, and whether it develops skills necessary for the emergence of an industrial labour force in the home country. Furthermore, he criticizes the notion that in the long run migrant labour complements native labour. On the basis of this critique, he develops an alternative theory of the nature of the migration process
Innovation, the missing dimension by Richard K Lester( Book )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amid mounting concern over the loss of jobs to low-wage economies, one fact is clear: America's prosperity hinges on the ability of its businesses to continually introduce new products and services. But what makes a creative economy? How can the remarkable surge of innovation that fueled the boom of the 1990s be sustained?" "For an answer, Richard Lester and Michael Piore examine innovation strategies in some of the economy's most dynamic sectors. Through case studies of new product development in fields such as cell phones, medical devices, and blue jeans, two fundamental processes emerge." "One of these processes, analysis - rational problem solving - dominates management and engineering practice. The other, interpretation, is not widely understood, or even recognized - although, as the authors make clear, it is absolutely crucial to innovation." "But the authors also offer a critique of national policy. By ignoring the role of interpretation, economic policymakers are drawing the wrong lessons from the 1990s boom. The current emphasis on expanding the reach of market competition will help the analytical processes needed to implement innovation. But if unchecked, it risks choking off the economy's vital interpretive spaces."--Jacket

Beyond individualism by Michael J Piore( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Reagan and Bush years left us with a troublesome dilemma: how to balance our budget deficit against our social deficit. This book takes up the urgent question of how, in a time of budgetary stringency, we can meet the pent-up demand for spending on our nation's neglected poor, ill, and disadvantaged, old and young. Michael Piore's response is to develop a new social theory that balances individual preferences against the claims and responsibilities of the community. By explaining the role of groups in economic and social life, this theory makes sense of a host of perplexing social phenomena and policy issues, from equal employment opportunity to international competitiveness to the decline of organized labor, from multicultural education to health insurance to the underclass

Travail, compétences et mondialisation les dynamiques sociétales en question by Ariel Mendez( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La mondialisation conduit-elle inéluctablement à l'uniformisation de la vie économique, sociale et culturelle? Les processus de diffusion de normes universelles s'imposent-ils à des acteurs qui se contenteraient de les décliner localement sans peu ou pas les modifier? Sans nier la puissance des processus de convergence et d'uniformisation associés à de nouvelles formes de centralité des marchés financiers, des firmes multinationales ou des villes globales, l'objectif de cet ouvrage collectif et interdisciplinaire est de mettre l'accent sur les contre-tendances inscrites dans les dynamiques sociétales et de proposer une analyse critique des processus de mondialisation. Étudiée à partir des transformations du travail, de l'emploi et des compétences, la mondialisation apparaît comme un assemblage de processus parfois convergents, souvent chaotiques, sources de désynchronisations, et qui percutent et reconstruisent tout à la fois les espaces et les modes de régulation au niveau local, national et supra-national."--Page 4 of cover

Internal labor markets, technological change, and labor force adjustment by Peter B Doeringer( Book )

5 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Differences between labor force skills and the requirements of blue collar jobs are reconciled by means over which the employer, alone or with a labor organization, exercises control. The adjustment model presented in this study recognizes an inplant labor market connected to the external market at a limited number of points. Certain variables--inplant job structure, administrative rules, external labor force size and character, hiring standards, compensation, and procedures for recruiting, screening, and training--form both the major determinant of inplant labor costs and the means of adapting to changing technology and labor supply. Private adjustment mechanisms, mostly training on the job, correct imbalances between needed job skills and labor force characteristics, but they operate at a cost. Federal manpower programs should stress general training in basic mathematical and verbal skills, subsidized inplant training and selection programs, and information exchange among plants.
