Many workers are caught in a spiral of longer hours, growing job insecurity, work stress and family conflict. Many want to spend more time with their family but fear being labelled uncommitted. "The War Over Work" is a bold and authoritative account of work patterns and the labour market in Australia. As Edgar sees it, the future workplace is a battleground, with struggles between corporate need and private greed, unions and employers, men and women, old and young. Edgar argues that we cannot continue to focus narrowly on 'the work-family balance' as though it can be achieved through simple programs within individual Australian workplaces. "The War Over Work" provides a blueprint for how we can win the war to get a life that works. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
