How does work shape our values, our citizens, cultures and communities? As our work changes, how will it change us? How does the blurring of work and leisure through 'access anywhere' technology affect our attitudes to work? How are older Australians going to find consistent and flexible work (as the government wants them to do) when age discrimination is rife? Will flexible work help decrease the gender gap? These are the questions posed in The Way We Work. The way we work has changed profoundly in recent years. Many welcome the flexibility of the new environment. For others, though, it represents a deepening of risk and insecurity. The proletariat is giving way to what has been called the precariat, a new class who lack the stability and certainty of regular work or predictable social welfare.

Griffith REVIEW 45:The Way We Work?explores the extraordinary structural changes in work caused by technology, globalisation, economic theory, the collapse of the unions and an ageing population.
