The Fictitious Commodity: A Study of the U.S. Labor Market, 1880-1940 (Contributions in Labor Studies)
Ton KorverISBN: 0313273383;
Covering the development of the American labor market from 1880 to 1946 Korver's volume stresses relations of authority (versus power) in employment. Deemphasizing concepts of market and contract, it focuses on employer/employee and demonstrates the inadequacy of conventional economic discourse on labor market analysis. Stressing the importance of unskilled labor--an oft forgotten category--Korver demonstrates that new immigration coupled unskilled labor with the novel option of citizenship and made it part of the "emerging world of mass production."
