This book explores the growing tension between the requirements of employers for a flexible work force and the ability of parents and communities to nurture their chidren and provide for their health, welfare and education. Global competition and the spread of information technology are forcing business to engage in rapid, worldwide production changes, customized marketing and just-in-time delivery. They are reorganizing work around decentralized management, work differentiation, and short-term and part-time employment. Increasingly, workers must be able to move across firms and even across types of work, as jobs get redefined.
