Social work practice and education long have been influenced by trends in the U.S. economy, particularly as these trends affected patterns of employment and unemployment. This article assesses the implications of recent changes in patterns of economic production and the nature of work for the social work profession. The authors conclude with recommendations on how schools of social work can address these implications in their curricula and their relationships with the communities in which they are located.
