Sub titel: Virtual work in a real world
A new global labour force is being created working in call centres, homes and electronic sweatshops. New technologies are also transforming daily life. This book presents a coherent conceptual framework within which these developments can be understood. Explains the impact of technology on the workplace, and relates its arguments and analyses to the work-situations of real people, showing how larger trends influence daily activities and shape the possibilities of collective action. A portrait of working conditions experienced by both men and women, but focuses especially on the double impact on women both as workers and as consumers.
