Women and Work: Inequality in the Canadian Labour Market, Third Edition

This completely revised edition of Women and Work: Inequality in the Canadian Labour Market analyses women's position in the Canadian labour market with the aid of the latest statistics and employment trends. The authors show how the restructuring of the Canadian economy towards a global, corporatist, information-driven system continues to short change women. A new chapter on unemployment insurance describes how its support has been successively cut back, especially in the 1990s.
As well as documenting women's position in the working world, the authors also seek the reasons for disparities and look at ways they might be changed. Both men and women will find this book cogent and clear in explaining their relative positions, as Canada continues to shift to a service-providing economy.
Written by Paul Phillips and Erin Phillips. Published by James Lorimer & Company Ltd., 2000.
