Labor's Power and Industrial Performance: Automobile Production Regimes in the U.S., Germany, and Japan
Taylor & Francis, 1998 - 328 oldal
Constructs an analytical framework of production politics within which to address such phenomena as the erosion of wages and lost of good jobs in the US in the 1980s, the emulation by US companies of production methods from elsewhere, and differences and similarities between Japanese and German industrial relations. Narrowing the study to the automobile industry, argues that variations in labor's fortunes and competitive success can be explained by distinct patterns of labor inclusion in corporate decision making. Distributed in the US by Taylor and Francis. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
