Are government-sponsored training programs a route to greater management control of the workplace, or to labour freedom?
Today as at the time of the book's publication in 1992, training is prominent in public policy and political life. The authors in this collection maintain that it is central to management initiatives aimed at the restructuring of the workplace, and that governments rely on it as a substitute for coherent industrial policy. On the other hand, it can enhance workers' skills, improve working conditions and build a more a more democratic working life.
Training for What? is a collection of papers examining occupational training as a tool of ongoing political struggle in the workplace.
An Our Schools/Our Selves book.
