Book Review: Precarious employment: causes, consequences and remedies


Work is changing so rapidly that it can be challenging to keep up with its ongoing iterations of precarity and just how many people are profoundly affected. Independent contractors, foreign or domestic temporary workers, social-services workers and so many others confronting the sudden casualization of employment in their sector all inhabit the ever-growing categories of precarious work. To see how we got here, we need to look at where we came from: In the book Precarious employment: causes, consequences and remedies, the reader will find an in-depth study of the early forms of precarious work that have emerged and thrived in the last 30 years and a detailed look at many facets of that work.
