One of the few studies to provide a comprehensive empirical and theoretical analysis of technology's impact on Canadian working life. Major figures in academia, economic planning, and organized labor deal with: the conceptualization of technology and its relation to labor in the broadest sense; the joint historical evolution of technology and labor; empirical studies of the impact of technology on work in Canada; quantitative and qualitative case studies; and considerations of future public policy relating to technology and work.
