Abstract

The paper argues that the adoption of more flexible labour policies has been a major feature of work and employment restructuring in the 1980s and 1990s. We argue that there are three main dimensions of labour utilisation: work intensification; job broadening and employment insecurity. These dimensions are afecting both standard 'core' workers and non-standard 'peripheral' workers.
