Laboring under the Sign of the New: Cultural Studies, Organizational Communication, and the Fallacy of the New Economy.
Cloud, Dana L.
Management Communication Quarterly, v15 n2 p268-78 Nov 2001
Suggests the field of communication studies is substantially marked by a nearly exclusive emphasis on culture that risks ignoring a powerful class antagonism between workers and employers. Notes that current literature in the field emphasizes voice, identity, and cultural microstrategies in the workplace rather than on labor's agency in winning material improvements in the lives of workers.
