Restructuring, Teams, and Learning: The Case of a Clothing Company.
Brown, Tony
Studies in Continuing Education, v21 n2 p239-58 Nov 1999
Interviews with female employees of a clothing company moving to lean production and teamwork indicate that Taylorism is being reinvented in the contemporary workplace. Restructuring produces higher productivity but greater work pressures and lower wages, despite rhetoric about autonomy, job satisfaction, and workplace democracy. (Contains 57 references.) (SK)
