Workers in an Integrating World. World Development Report, 1995. Executive Summary.
World Bank, Washington, DC.
This executive summary examines the rapid changes occurring in economic markets and employment around the world. The report concludes that problems of low incomes, poor working conditions, and insecurity affecting many of the world's workers can be tackled effectively in ways that reduce poverty and regional inequality. Sound domestic policy and a supportive international environment will be necessary to reach those goals. This summary is divided into an overview and a highlights section. Numerous charts and graphs present the statistical information. (EH)
