Geographies of Labour Market Inequality
Ron Martin, Philip S. Morrison
Routledge, Sep 2, 2003 - Architecture - 280 pages
In recent years, the local dimensions of the labour market have attracted increasing attention from academic analysts and public policy-makers alike. There is growing realization that there is no such thing as the national labour market, instead a mosaic of local and regional markets that differ in nature, performance and regulation. Geographies of Labour Market Inequality is concerned with these multiple geographies of employment, unemployment, work and incomes, and their implications for public policy.
