Social security policies in industrial countries : a comparative analysis by Margaret S Gordon( Book )

29 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After 25 years of expansion and liberalisation in the post-war period, social security policies in industrial countries have been encountering stresses and strains in the 1970s and 1980s in an environment of slower economic growth, concern over inflation and high unemployment. This has led to intensified controversy between conservatives, who blame economic instability on the generosity of the welfare state and liberals who defend the role of social security programmes in contributing to economic stability and preventing people from falling into poverty. The discussion focuses on questions such as the relative merits of earnings-related, income-tested and universal benefits; who bears the financial burden; and the impact of social security benefits on incentives to work. Among the controversial issues receiving considerable attention are the arguments over the persistence of high unemployment in Western Europe, the attacks on 'entitlements' that benefit the middle class and the growing problem of disadvantaged youth, especially in the ghetto areas of large cities in some of the Western European countries and in the United States

The Bay Area Employer Policy Survey was designed to gather comprehensive data on employer policies and practices and to undertake an extensive analysis of variations in practices by industry size and other characteristics. The San Jose Metropolitan Area and the five-county San Francisco-Oakland Area were included in the study. A sample of 300 employers, representing about 20 percent of all nonfarm wage and salary workers in the area, was drawn from a universe of all industrial establishments employing 100 or more persons. Individual chapters examine the following policy areas: (1) employment, (2) location of industry, (3) technological change, (4) industrial relations structure and personnel departments, (5) recruitment, (6) selection practices, (7) promotion, (8) labor turnover, (9) wage policy and wage differentials, (10) training, and (11) employment projections. Numerous tables and the Bay Area Employer Policy Survey are appended. (Bc)
