From debates around the high pressures of the corporate work environment to those around the present day labor movement, discussions about work prevail in popular thinking and the media. Do the wealthiest, most powerful corporations today reward their white-collar employees with outstanding vacation and family-leave packages or exploit their workforce by demanding unreasonable hours and unrealistic goals? And how do their blue-collar employees fare? This volume will explore these questions as well as other current topics—from such rising trends as employees working from home and new discussions around “work-life balance” to reports on how the US economy has fared in the years following the ‘'great recession.”
