Abstract

Job quality matters. It contributes to economic competitiveness, social cohesion and personal well-being. Focusing on 'bad jobs', this book outlines debates, developments, issues and trends in job quality whilst asking the question are bad jobs inevitable?. Bringing together an internationally renowned group of academics, the book defines and measures bad jobs; explains variation and change in job quality; and identifies workplace practices and broader non-workplace strategies for making bad jobs better.
