Workplace Vagabonds: Career and Community in Changing Worlds of Work (repost)

Christina Garsten, "Workplace Vagabonds: Career and Community in Changing Worlds of Work"
2008 | ISBN: 1403917582 | 196 pages | PDF | 1 MB

This book explores the flexibility of work and labor markets based on studies of the temporary staffing sector in Sweden, Great Britain, and the US. It gives an inside view of what it means to be working as a "temp", and of notions of career and community, time and space. Moreover, it shows how the flexible worker is "made up" within the wider context of increasing globalization of labor markets, and new ways of organizing and of regulating work.
