New Technologies and Old Ways of Working in the Home of the Self-Employed Teleworker.
New Technology, Work and Employment, v17 n2 p89-101 Jul 2002
A study of home-based media workers found they were aware of discourses of freedom and innovation associated with teleworking, but they did not fit the reality of competing demands of domestic life and work. The research suggests that if home-based micro enterprises become more widespread, the results may be harsh for individuals and households as well as damaging for the quality of working life.
