Going beyond slogans and superficial explanations, the authors analyze the reasons why so many jobs disappeared from the Canadian economy in the 1990s.
Drawing on the results of a major three-year research project, the authors offer 25 case studies of Canadian companies from five key sectors of the economy. Included are examples from the resource sector, manufacturing, the low-wage service sector, information services and the public sector. Their findings permit them to suggest concrete steps that can be taken to remedy job losses.
Vanishing Jobs is an in-depth study of Canadian business and labour-market trends in the 1990s.

Editorial Review

"This book is an example of the richness of analysis possible from information that connects labour demand and labour supply information... some of the thinking behind the methodology of Vanishing Jobs has proved to be an important spur and guide to the development of such data in Canada..."
