   schema:reviewBody ""Drawing on a range of employee and employer surveys, including the authors' own Working in Britain 2000 survey, this ambitious book presents a comprehensive examination of the conditions, attitudes, and experiences of British employees from the mid-1980s to the early years of this century. The author's analysis provides a compelling critique of the received wisdom, while also providing an original, alternative account of recent developments in work and labour markets. Along the way, the book covers such topical issues as the changing nature of trade union membership, the consequences of Britain's 'long hours culture', and the apparent inability of women to ask for pay raises. Significantly, the authors seek to reposition debates about the future of work by restoring the concepts of contract and social class to the analysis of the employment relationship."--BOOK JACKET." ;
