4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Staircases or Treadmills? is the first comprehensive study documenting the prevalence of all types of labor market intermediaries and investigating how these intermediaries affect workers' employment opportunities. Benner, Leete, and Pastor draw on years of research in two distinct regional labor markets "old economy" Milwaukee and "new economy" Silicon Valley - including a first-of-its-kind random survey of the prevalence and impacts of intermediaries, and a wide range of interviews with intermediary agencies' staff and clients." "A generation ago, rising living standards were broadly distributed and coupled with relatively secure employment. Today, many Americans fear that heightened job insecurity is overshadowing the benefits of dynamic economic growth. Staircases or Treadmills? is a guide to how private and public job-matching institutions can empower disadvantaged workers to share in economic progress."--BOOK JACKET
