This book is designed to spark debate about the impact of current trends in employment. Based on years of research on employment practices in Canada, Lowe argues that employment figures are a poor measure of economic health and an inadequate basis for policies. Instead, he proposes that we reorganize the workplace around the idea of meaningful work--work that offers personal development, a social purpose, a decent standard of living, and a sense of economic security. Far from being whimsical or fiscally irresponsible, quality work can lay the groundwork for better lives for workers and a strong, stable economy.
