Abstract

Research on stratification has shifted from a focus on the characteristics of individuals to a focus on the characteristics of larger social structures such as organizations and industries. Structuralist perspectives have developed primarily in isolation from each other. Using new life-history data from the Federal Republic of Germany, we draw on three structuralist perspectives to specify more complete models of the mobility process. Specifically, we investigate the effects of organizational size, social class and industrial segmentation on job-shift patterns, using event-history methods. The findings show that recent structuralist perspectives which are commonly thought to be contradictory are in fact complementary.
