This book explores how labour markets are changing - jobs are being created but they pay less and job security is declining, as is the payoff for experience and seniority.

They conclude with their recommendations for better design, promotion, and evaluation for such community-based networks. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
