Description

What are the correlations between the education that employees bring to their jobs, the education that is required to do those jobs, and the skills that employees acquire while working on the job?

In Education and Jobs, D.W. Livingstone and contributors explore these questions. Written as a sequel to the highly acclaimed The Education-Jobs Gap: Underemployment or Economic Democracy, the work builds on earlier research, and presents brand new case studies of professional, service, industrial, and differently-abled employees, including high school teachers, clerical workers, autoworkers, and computer programmers. Throughout, the book reveals an increasingly overqualified non-managerial Canadian labour force and demonstrates that most workers deal with gaps or mismatches in formal terms by continually learning and reshaping their jobs.

Education and Jobs presents a unique blend of qualitative and quantitative analysis, and offers a comprehensive, long-overdue approach to re-examining the relationship between educational training and workforce skills.
