  • Creating “Risky” New Roles in Healthcare: Identities, Boundary-Making,
           and Skilling Under Rationalization and Consumer Demand
    • Authors: Cindy L. Cain, Caty Taborda, Monica Frazer
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      Healthcare is experiencing two countervailing pressures: to increase efficiency and be more responsive to consumer demands. Healthcare organizations often create new work arrangements, including “lay healthcare” roles, to respond to these pressures. Using longitudinal qualitative data, this article analyzes how one set of new lay healthcare workers attempted to construct a workplace identity, sell their value to existing professional workers, and navigate the precarious conditions of the new role. The authors find that workers in these new roles faced immense challenges stemming from their positions as “risk absorbers,” which ultimately harmed workers and reduced the efficacy of the new role.

  • Does the Black/White Wage Gap Widen During Recessions'
    • Authors: Shinjinee Chattopadhyay, Emily C. Bianchi
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      Researchers have long documented a significant wage gap between White and Black workers, at least some of which is attributable to discrimination. Drawing on research suggesting that discrimination increases during recessions, we test whether the racial wage gap expands during economic downturns. Using longitudinal wage data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics over a 40-year time period (N = 18,954), we find that the wage gap between Black and White workers increases with the unemployment rate. Moreover, we find that the cyclical wage gap is more pronounced in states in which Whites hold more negative attitudes about Blacks and in states with larger Black populations, suggesting that the racial wage gap expansion during recessions is at least partially driven by discrimination. Finally, we find evidence for at least two mechanisms by which the wage gap expands during recessions. First, we find that Black workers are more likely to lose their jobs during downturns and earn lower wages upon reemployment than comparable Whites. Second, we find that Black hourly workers are slightly more likely to have their hours reduced during recessions than White hourly workers, thereby resulting in lower earnings. These findings suggest that the racial wage gap widens during recessions and that discrimination accounts for at least some of this expansion.

  • Controlling or Channeling Demands' How Schedule Control Influences the
           Link Between Job Pressure and the Work-Family Interface
    • Authors: Philip J. Badawy, Scott Schieman
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      Schedule control is theorized as a job resource that should reduce the extent to which work demands bleed into nonwork time and decrease work-to-family conflict. However, schedule control might also come with greater expectations that workers fully devote themselves to work even during non-conventional work times; in this scenario, schedule control might act as a channel through which job demands can more easily permeate nonwork roles and generate conflict. Drawing on four waves of panel data from the Canadian Work, Stress, and Health Study (2011–2017), the authors use fixed effects regression techniques to discover some contradictions in the resource functions of schedule control. The authors find that schedule control exacerbates the effect of job pressure on role blurring, and these observed downsides of schedule control are stronger for women. By discovering gendered effects in the moderating role of schedule control, this study sharpens prevailing knowledge about its functions as a resource and the ways that it might channel stressful work-related demands.

  • Intrinsically Rewarding Work and Generativity in Midlife: The Long Arm of
           the Job
    • Authors: Harvey J. Krahn, Matthew D. Johnson, Nancy L. Galambos
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      Work is a productive activity that can also contribute to the well-being of the next generation. Using two waves of data from the Edmonton Transitions Study, this research examined the link between intrinsically rewarding work and generativity, or one’s perceived contributions to society. Controlling for relevant variables, more intrinsically rewarding work at age 43 predicted increasing generativity over the next seven years, and increases in intrinsic work rewards were associated with increased generativity between age 43 and 50. The results demonstrate the potential of the workplace to prompt growth in midlife generativity.

  • Choosing Bad Jobs: The Use of Nonstandard Work as a Commitment Device
    • Authors: Laura Adler
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      With nonstandard work on the rise, workers are increasingly forced into bad jobs—jobs that are low-paying, part-time, short-term, and dead-end. But some people, especially in cultural industries, embrace this kind of work. To understand why some might choose bad jobs when better options are available, this paper examines the job preferences of aspiring artists, who often rely on bad day jobs as they attempt to achieve economic success in the arts. Using interviews with 68 college-educated artists, I find that their preferences are informed not only by utility and identity considerations—two factors established in the literature—but also by the value of bad jobs as commitment devices, which reinforce dedication to career aspirations. The case offers new insights into the connection between jobs and careers and enriches the concept of the commitment device with a sociological perspective, showing that these devices are not one-time contracts but ongoing practices.

  • Employment Quality as a Health Determinant: Empirical Evidence for the
           Waged and Self-Employed
    • Authors: Jessie Gevaert, Karen Van Aerden, Deborah De Moortel, Christophe Vanroelen
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      In this study, the authors investigate the health associations of different employment arrangements in the contemporary European labor market. In doing so, a new approach based on the concept of “employment quality” is introduced. Employment quality refers to the multiple dimensions characterizing the employment situation of wage- and self-employed (European Working Conditions Survey 2015 – N = 31,929). Latent class cluster analyses were applied to construct an overarching typology of employment quality for the waged and self-employed. Using logistic regression analyses, strong associations were found with mental well-being and self-reported general health, pointing at a disadvantaged situation for the most precarious employment arrangements. The study shows that employment quality should be taken seriously as a health determinant both among waged workers and the self-employed. Our (novel) holistic approach offers an alternative to current analyses of the health associates of labor market segmentation that were criticized for being overly simplistic and amounting to inconclusive findings.

  • Production Regimes and Class Compromise Among European Warehouse Workers
    • Authors: Nadja Dörflinger, Valeria Pulignano, Steven P. Vallas
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      The orderly functioning of global capitalism increasingly depends on the labor of logistics workers. But social scientists have yet to produce nuanced accounts of the labor process in the many ports, warehouses, and distribution centers that lie at the heart of logistics work. In this study, the authors seek to connect the nascent field of critical logistics studies to theories of the labor process in an effort to understand the production regimes that arise in warehouse work under different economic and regulatory conditions. Using qualitative data gathered at four European warehouses owned by the same third-party logistics firm, the authors identify several distinct types of production regimes at these warehouses and analyze the conditions accounting for each. Even in this globally oriented industry in which firms seek to standardize their international operations, locally rooted conditions play a significant role, generating sharply different forms of labor control even within the same firm.

  • Surgical Patient Safety Officers in the United States: Negotiating
           Contradictions Between Compliance and Workplace Transformation
    • Authors: Catherine van de Ruit, Charles L. Bosk
      First page: 3
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      A largely uncoordinated patient safety movement arose in response to the Institute of Medicine’s 1999 report on patient safety, To Err Is Human. Two key outcomes have resulted from that movement: (a) new guidelines that enlarge requirements for documenting compliance with patient safety data and (b) a new obligation for health care organizations to create a “safety culture” based on the “science” of safety. The organizational title patient safety officer (PSO) designates a member of an emerging occupation charged with assuming these enlarged responsibilities. This article seeks, first, to describe the emergence of this new organizational role, the PSO; second, to identify the new tensions that task and mission inflation have created for PSOs; and third, to examine how PSOs manage the tensions between their increased core work task and their new professional mission as agents of organizational change. Drawing on interviews conducted with 32 PSOs, 127 nurses, and 36 physicians in 17 surgical departments across 5 states in the United States from 2012 to 2015, the authors find that PSOs most commonly resolve the tension between core work activity and professional mission by focusing on their task as agents of audit and compliance. The authors find, as well, that when PSOs attempt to use their expanded role as social reformers to change behaviors in surgery, they must overcome the resistance of frontline workers. They require cooperation from executives and surgeons to effect change. When this support is unavailable, PSOs lose their voice and may abandon efforts to improve safety.

  • Managers Shaping the Service Triangle: Navigating Resident and Worker
           Interests Through Work Design in Nursing Homes
    • Authors: Lander Vermeerbergen, Aoife M. McDermott, Jos Benders
      First page: 70
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      Managers play a key role in shaping the service triangle and navigating stakeholder interests within this. In health care, labor shortages are prompting consideration of the consequences of care delivery for service users and staff. Here, the authors consider how senior nursing home managers tasked with balancing resident and worker interests manage tensions using work design. The findings identify a five-cluster typology, reflecting variations in how managers from 20 Flemish nursing homes operationalize the same resident-centered care model. Managers purposively shape a different service triangle in each operationalization, variously prioritizing benefits for residents, seeking the golden mean, or attempting to suppress tensions.

  • Why Has Computerization Increased Wage Inequality' Information,
           Occupational Structural Power, and Wage Inequality
    • Authors: Tali Kristal
      First page: 466
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      This article offers a new account of rising inequality by providing a new explanation for the observed correlation between computerization and earnings. The argument is that as computers transformed work into a more knowledge-intensive activity, occupations located at critical junctions of information flow have gained greater structural power, and thereby higher wages. Combining occupational measures for location in the information flow based on the Occupational Information Network with the 1979–2016 Current Population Surveys, the analyses reveal a rising wage premium for occupations with greater access to and control of information, independent of the spectrum of skills related to computerization.

  • Varieties of Precarity: How Insecure Work Manifests Itself, Affects
           Well-Being, and Is Shaped by Social Welfare Institutions and Labor Market
    • Authors: Hande Inanc
      First page: 504
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      Precarious Lives addresses one of the most important developments in employment relations in the neoliberal era: increase in labor precarity and the subsequent decline in employee well-being. Drawing on data on social welfare institutions and labor market policies in six rich democracies, the author shows that work is less precarious, and workers are happier, when institutions and policies provide job protection, and put in place support systems to buffer job loss.
