With globalization, smaller employers are increasingly becoming part of large multinational companies, and workers are now forced to compete on a world stage. The result is that long-term, stable jobs are disappearing as work has become more temporary, part-time, and contingent. This volume offers a collection of original essays that explore the changing nature of work in the Commonwealth and its impact on workers, their families, and their communities.

Taking a multidisciplinary approach, the contributors examine the impact of offshoring and outsourcing and the growth of low-wage employment in the service sector, while also looking at the software industry and the future of high-tech jobs. The volume includes an overview of the economics of work in Massachusetts, an analysis of the experience of women and minorities in the workforce, and a case study of the fiscal crisis in Springfield and its relationship to employment issues. Several chapters address the challenges and prospects in the health care industry. adjustments in the nature of work play out in families across the state, and how policy changes could help workers and their families adjust to these new environments.
