Description

Written as the computer revolution dawned on Canadian society, Computers on the Job introduces the effects of technological change on people in their homes and workplaces.

Heather Menzies explains, in clear, nontechnical terms, how the microcochip unleashes the full potential of computers, allowing employers to automate many routine jobs and transform others--sometimes for the benefit of employees, sometimes not. She traces the effects of computerization on office work, on the service industry and on traditional blue-collar occupations, forecasting changes that, in many cases, have come to pass.

Computers on the Job is a pioneering study of the impact of widespread computer use on Canadian society.
