Labour and childhood by Margaret McMillan( Book )

13 editions published between 1907 and 2013 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celebrated for her pioneering work to improve the education, health and welfare of slum children, Margaret McMillan (1860-1931) was an active socialist campaigner and member of the Independent Labour Party. Her involvement with Bradford school boards drew her attention to the poor state of health of the pupils - rickets, scurvy, anaemia and malnutrition were commonplace. Working with her sister Rachel (1859-1917), as well as lobbying for improved standards, Margaret opened the country's first school clinic in Bow in 1908. The sisters' most famous enterprise, the Deptford Camp School, soon followed, and the Rachel McMillan College for training nurses and teachers was founded in 1930. One of her many influential books on pre-school and primary education, this work of 1907 considers the vital role of the school doctor and argues that the practice of poor schoolchildren engaging in part-time labour is detrimental to their well-being

Estimating the Impact of Trade and Offshoring on American Workers Using the Current Population Surveys by Avraham Ebenstein( )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors link industry-level data on trade and offshoring with individual-level worker data from the Current Population Surveys. They find that occupational exposure to globalization is associated with larger wage effects than industry exposure. This effect has been overlooked because it operates between rather than within sectors of the economy. The authors also find that globalization is associated with a reallocation of workers across sectors and occupations. They estimate wage losses of 2 to 4 percent among workers leaving manufacturing and 4 to 11 percent among workers who also switch occupations. These effects are most pronounced for workers who perform routine tasks
The changing structure of Africa's economies by Xinshen Diao( )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using data from the Groningen Growth and Development Center's Africa Sector Database and the Demographic and Health Surveys, we show that much of Africa's recent growth and poverty reduction has been associated with a substantive decline in the share of the labor force engaged in agriculture. This decline is most pronounced for rural females over the age of 25 who have a primary education; it has been accompanied by a systematic increase in the productivity of the labor force, as it has moved from low productivity agriculture to higher productivity services and manufacturing. We also show that although the employment share in manufacturing is not expanding rapidly, in most of the low-income African countries, the employment share in manufacturing has not peaked and is still expanding, albeit from very low levels. More work is needed to understand the implications of these shifts in employment shares for future growth and development in Africa south of the Sahara

The recent growth boom in developing economies : a structural-change perspective by Xinshen Diao( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growth has accelerated in a wide range of developing countries over the last couple of decades, resulting in an extraordinary period of convergence with the advanced economies. We analyze this experience from the lens of structural change - the reallocation of labor from low- to high-productivity sectors. Patterns of structural change differ greatly in the recent growth experience. In contrast to the East Asian experience, none of the recent growth accelerations in Latin America, Africa, or South Asia was driven by rapid industrialization. Beyond that, we document that recent growth accelerations were based on either rapid within-sector labor productivity growth (Latin America) or growth-increasing structural change (Africa), but rarely both at the same time. The African experience is particularly intriguing, as growth-enhancing structural change appears to have come typically at the expense of declining labor productivity growth in the more modern sectors of the economy. We explain this anomaly by arguing that the forces that promoted structural change in Africa originated on the demand side, through either external transfers or increase in agricultural incomes. In contrast to Asia, structural change was the result of increased demand for goods and services produced in the modern sectors of the economy rather than productivity improvements in these sectors
Advances in contemporary nurse recruitment and retention by Margaret McMillan( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The need to make a commitment to the future of nursing has never been more imperative. The nursing profession has never had a greater need to understand the future, to envision a preferred future, and to develop strategies to create the preferred future than it does today. Nursing is facing a crisis in recruitment and retention. This is having a significant and negative impact on the capacities of health care systems to respond appropriately and effectively to the health needs of individuals and communities
