Why Workers Won't Work: The Worker in a Developing Economy : a Case Study of Jamaica

Front Cover
Macmillan Caribbean, 1997 - Business & Economics - 179 pages
In any work situation resentment towards the management, poor working attitudes and low labour productivity continue to be the main obstacles towards economic progress and social well-being. Using Jamiaca as his case study, Kenneth Carter asks why workers are behaving in this way, what can be done to improve the situation and who is the most qualified to provide the answers. It provides an insight into why workers dissatisfaction has reached such endemic proportions not only in the Caribbean but also in the rest of the working world.
