Fighting for time : shifting boundaries of work and social life by Cynthia Fuchs Epstein( )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Fighting for Time, editors Cynthia Fuchs Epstein and Arne L. Kalleberg bring together a team of distinguished sociologists and management analysts to examine the social construction of time and its importance in American culture." "Fighting for Time challenges assumptions about the relationship between time and work, revealing that time is a fluid concept that derives its importance from cultural attitudes, social psychological processes, and the exercise of power. Its insight will be of interest to sociologists, economists, social psychologists, business leaders, and anyone interested in the work-life balance."--Jacket
Good jobs, bad jobs : the rise of polarized and precarious employment systems in the United States, 1970s to 2000s by Arne L Kalleberg( )

22 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The economic boom of the 1990s veiled a grim reality: in addition to the growing gap between good and bad quality jobs was also expanding. The postwar prosperity of the mid-twentieth century had enabled millions of American workers to join the middle class, but as author Arne L. Kalleberg shows, by the 1970s this upward movement had slowed, in part due to the steady disappearance of secure, well-paying industrial jobs. Ever since, precarious employment has been on the rise - paying low wages, offering few benefits, and with virtually no long-term security. Today, the polarization between workers with higher skill levels and those with low skills and low wages is more entrenched than ever. Good Jobs, Bad Jobs traces this trend to large-scale transformations in the American labor market and the changing demographics of low-wage workers. Kalleberg draws on nearly four decades of survey data, as wlel as his own research, to evaluate trends in U.S. job quality and suggest ways to improve American labor-market practices and social policies. Good Jobs, Bad Jobs provides an insightful analysis of how and why precarious employment is gaining ground in the labor market and the role these developments have played in the decline of the middle class. Kalleberg shows that by the 1970s government deregulation, global competition, and the rise of the service sector gained traction, while institutional protections for workers - such as unions and minimum-wage legislation - weakened. Together, these forces marked the end of postwar security for American workers. The composition of the labor force also changed significantly; the number of dual-earner families increased, as did the share of the workforce comprised of women, non-white, and immigrant workers. Of these groups, blacks, Latinos, and immigrants remain concentrated in the most precarious and low-quality jobs, with educational attainment being the leading indicator of who will earn the highest wages and experience the most job security and highest levels of autonomy and control over their jobs and schedules. Kalleberg demonstrates, however, that building a better safety net - increasing government responsibility for worker health care and retirement, as well as strengthening unions - can go a long way toward redressing the effects of today's volatile labor market. There is every reason to expect that the growth of precarious jobs - which already make up a significant share of the American job market - will continue. Good Jobs, Bad Jobs deftly shows that the decline in U.S. job quality is not the result of fluctuations in the business cycle, but rather is the result of economic restructuring and the disappearance of institutional protections for workers. Only government, employers, and labor working together on long-term strategies - including an expanded safety net, strengthened legal protections, and better training opportunities - can help reverse this trend. -- from dust jakcet

Ending poverty in America : how to restore the American dream by John Edwards( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ending Poverty in America brings together several of America's most distinguished academics alongside celebrated journalists, neighborhood organizers, and business leaders. Notably, the voices heard here are both liberal and conservative. Together they offer cogent explanations of why poverty in the United States is steadily increasing and propose concrete steps that can be taken to start turning the tide in terms of job creation, education and schools, homeownership, racial division, supporting families, savings, and counteracting the vanishing of the middle class. in his eloquent conclusion, John Edwards presents a bold strategy to eliminate poverty in America in the next thirty years. Thought-provoking, insightful, and full of forward-thinking ideas, this essential book lays out a much-needed path toward ending poverty --a template for the renewed public debate around one of the great moral issues of our time. --From publisher's description

Work and industry : structures, markets, and processes by Arne L Kalleberg( Book )

18 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Work occupies a pivotal role in the daily activities and over the course of a lifetime of members of modern societies. In anticipation, work influ ences education and training; it has much to do with shaping current earned income and status in the community; and in retrospect, it influ ences retirement income and activities. It is a powerful force affecting personal associations. In our society work is deeply encased in moral and religious values: As Poor Richard says, A Life of Leisure and a Life of Laziness are two Things. Do you imagine that Sloth will afford you more Comfort than Labour? No, for as Poor Richard says: ... Industry gives Comfort, and Plenty and Respect. Study to show thyself approved unto God a workman that needeth not to be ashamed. But few words have as many different meanings and nuances as "work": to forge or to shape, to stir or to knead, to solve, to exploit, to practice trickery for some end, to excite or to provoke, to persuade or to influence, to toil, and the like. A need for precision in meaning is requisite with respect to work, not only in common discourse, but, even more so, in scholarly communication

Precarious lives : job insecurity and well-being in rich democracies by Arne L Kalleberg( Book )

12 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Employment relations in advanced, post-industrial democracies have become increasingly insecure and uncertain as the risks associated with work are being shifted from employers and governments to workers. Arne L. Kalleberg examines the impact of the liberalization of labor markets and welfare systems on the growth of precarious work and job insecurity for indicators of well-being such as economic insecurity, the transition to adulthood, family formation, and happiness, in six advanced capitalist democracies: the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Spain, and Denmark. This insightful cross-national analysis demonstrates how active labor market policies and generous social welfare systems can help to protect workers and give employers latitude as they seek to adapt to the rise of national and global competition and the rapidity of sweeping technological changes. Such policies thereby form elements of a new social contract that offers the potential for addressing many of the major challenges resulting from the rise of precarious work. --
Inequality : structures, dynamics and mechanisms : essays in honour of Aage B. Sørensen( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aage Sorensen was an influential intellectual presence who was one of the world's leading authorities on social stratification and the sociology of education. His research sought to understand the structures, dynamics and mechanisms that underlie inequalities in industrial societies by focusing on how individuals' attainments are shaped by characteristics of a society's or organization's opportunity structure, on the one hand, and individuals' education, experience and other human capital resources, on the other. He emphasized inequalities associated with education and schooling, class, and
Nonstandard work, substandard jobs : flexible work arrangements in the U.S. by Arne L Kalleberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonstandard work arrangements (independent contracting, working for a temporary help agency, contract or on-call work, day labor, self-employment, and regular part-time employment) are growing more common in the United States. In 1995, more than 29 percent of all jobs were in nonstandard work arrangements. A study of these jobs and the characteristics of the workers who hold them was conducted through analysis of the 1995 Current Population Survey. The study found that nonstandard workers are disadvantaged by their work arrangement and the preponderance of low-quality jobs because they are more likely than regular full-time workers to be employed in low-quality jobs. In addition to paying lower wages, all types of nonstandard nobs are much less likely to provide health insurance or a pension than is regular full-time employment, are more likely to be of limited duration, and are poor ways to move to regular full-time employment, at least within a particular firm. More women than men, and both genders in minority groups, are more likely to hold low-quality, nonstandard jobs. The study concluded that public policies are needed to improve job quality and provide greater workplace protection for workers in nonstandard work arrangements. (Contains 21 references.) (Kc)

National Organizations Survey (NOS), 1991 by Arne L Kalleberg( )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is a representative sample of United States work organizations, with data from informants about human resources policies and practices. Employed respondents in the 1991 General Social Survey gave identification and location information about their employers and the employers of working spouses. Each employee interviewed in person was matched to his or her employer, and an informant from the work establishment (either the personnel director or the chief executive officer) was interviewed by telephone or by mail questionnaire. Industry data from published government sources were merged with these data. Topics covered include employer staffing procedures, interval job ladders, promotion chains, job training programs, employee benefits and incentives, and structural characteristics of organizations

The National Organizations Survey (NOS) is a survey of business organizations across the United States in which the unit of analysis is the actual workplace. The study was conducted for the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the Commonwealth Fund, to learn about the employment policies, benefits, and structures of organizations throughout the country, particularly the effects on business performance and worker productivity of rising workplace stress levels, rising health insurance costs or lack of health insurance, and the extent of mental health benefits and service offerings within organizations
National Organizations Survey (NOS), 1996-1997 by Arne L Kalleberg( )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1996-1997 NOS consists of data on 1,002 United States work establishments and was conducted from June 10, 1996, to June 13, 1997, using a stratified random sample from approximately 15 million work establishments in Dun and Bradstreet's Information Services data file. The study concentrated on United States work establishments' employment contracts, applying an interorganizational network perspective to explain two basic human resource practices: how employers interact with other organizations to obtain and train new workers. Topics covered the use of contingent employees and relationships with organizational providers of contingent employees, staffing methods, internal job ladders and promotion chains, high performance work organization, job training programs, and employee benefits and incentives. Additional items gathered basic information about each organization's formal structure, social demography, environmental situation, and productivity and performance
