Summary
  • "The Struggle Over Work examines the theoretical origins and contemporary versions of this scenario, criticising the arguments of leading thinkers Claus Offe, Andre Gorz, Alain Touraine, and Jurgen Habermas. These thinkers advocate a basic income to cope with falling employment. Wilson contrasts this proposal with employment-centred alternatives: the 'US model' of work and welfare advocated by business and policy-making elites, and a full-employment model advocated by revived labour movements." "The Struggle Over Work challenges the pervasive pessimism about work and argues for a new engagement with the pressing problems of employment. This book will be of interest to students and academics in labour economics and the politics and sociology of work as well as public policy specialists."--Jacket.
