This progressive new reader features work from some of Canada's most prolific and talented writers on the subject of global markets including David Broad, Naomi Klein, Alan Sears, and David Livingstone.

The focus of the book is an examination of work in a global era, and is ideal for those interested in the changing strcuture of work in Canada and abroad. Its strength comes from its critical perspective as well as the examination of the role of Canadian labour in the global working world. Divided into eight key parts with a total of 16 essential readings, this volume covers a great deal of ground. From Fordist and Post-Fordist methods of production, to the challenge of working in free trade zones, from migration and transnationalism to training and skills in a knowledge-based economy, this book will fill a gap in the literature about work in Canada in the era of transnational citizens and corporations.
