Going beyond slogans and superficial explanations, the authors analyze the reasons why so many jobs disappeared from the Canadian economy in the 1990s.
Drawing on the results of a major three-year research project, the authors offer 25 case studies of Canadian companies from five key sectors of the economy. Included are examples from the resource sector, manufacturing, the low-wage service sector, information services and the public sector. Their findings permit them to suggest concrete steps that can be taken to remedy job losses.
Vanishing Jobs is an in-depth study of Canadian business and labour-market trends in the 1990s.
