Overview

This important study presents the results of the first analysis of labor market data from Britain's new SARs, drawing comparisons with research results for the USA and for Western European countries. The author fully examines several relevant phenomena, such as: a new and distinctive category of integrated occupations, employing men and women equally in highly qualified work; the diversification of part-time work; the emergence of a new category of marginal jobs; and the expansion of student jobs. This book also provides an excellent introductory guide for future SAR users.
