Abstract

Paid employment as the determinant experience for male workers has provided the focus for research on technological change and the new organization of work in manufacturing establishments. The principle question this paper addresses is - what distinguishes the new work environment from mass production? This paper questions the conviction that the modern high-tech manufacturing enterprise remains the determinant experience for radically reshaping attitudes and behaviours of male industrial workers. Empirical comparative analysis of different levels of production technologies in the same industry reveals a more complex picture.
