Contingent Employment, Workforce Health, and Citizenship by Marcia E. Facey
The increasing prevalence of contingent work has prompted concerns about its health implications for contingent workers.The research reported in this book casts light on the discrepant health-related findings by examining contingent work from the perspective of workers, through an exploration of how they experience and understand this form of work and how these experiences and understandings might affect health. The study revealed a strong discursive aspect to workers’ experience, and these discourses are the focus of this book.
