Editorial Reviews

"This is a sophisticated analysis, grounded in the best sources. At the same time, it addresses current issues that are likely to be on the minds of undergraduates." --Alan Sears, Ryerson University

"Crises in Canadian Work makes a fine balance between theory and evidence . . . [It] magisterially situates the root of the 'crises' - problems and challenges - that confront Canadians in the world of work." --Charles Adeyanju, University of Prince Edward Island
