About this product
- DescriptionKwledge Workers in the Information Society addresses the changing nature of work, workers, and their organizations in the media, information, and kwledge industries. These kwledge workers include journalists, broadcasters, librarians, filmmakers and animators, government workers, and employees in the telecommunications and high tech sectors. Techlogical change has become relentless. Corporate concentration has created new pressures to rationalize work and eliminate stages in the labor process. Globalization and advances in telecommunications have made real the prospect that kwledge work will follow manufacturing labor to parts of the world with low wages, poor working conditions, and little unionization. McKercher and Mosco bring together scholars from numerous disciplines to examine kwledge workers from a genuinely global perspective.
- Author BiographyCatherine McKercher is associate professor in the School of Journalism and Communication at Carleton University. Vincent Mosco is professor of sociology and Canada Research Chair in Communication and Society at Queen's University.
