  • Neurodivergence and the Persistence of Neurotypical Norms and Inequalities
           in Educational and Occupational Settings

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sophie Hennekam, Mukta Kulkarni, Joy E Beatty
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      This article points to the mechanism that reinforces neurotypical norms and inequalities through the internalization of stigma associated with neurodiversity and social class within educational and occupational settings. We draw upon the literatures of neurodiversity, neurotypical norms and the internalization of stigma. We report on two studies conducted in France – one survey-based (324 neurodivergent students) and another interview-based (25 neurodivergent working adults) – and find a common awareness of and perceived pressure among neurodivergent students and working adults to conform to neurotypical norms. Internalizing the stigma associated with their condition, both students and working adults employ individual coping strategies to present themselves as neurotypical. We also find that social class exacerbates inequalities as individuals from lower social classes are less likely to get diagnosed and have access to accommodations and support. This has implications for educational institutions and organizations alike on how these spaces can be made more inclusive for neurodivergent individuals.

  • ‘We Are Not All the Same’: The Capacity of Different Groups of Food
           Delivery Gig Workers to Build Collective and Individual Power Resources

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Pedro Mendonça, Nadia K Kougiannou
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      This article explores how various groups of food delivery gig workers create and maintain distinct strategies to build collective and individual power resources, including institutional, associational, structural and mobility power. Drawing on 35 interviews with food delivery couriers, social media data and observations in a British city, this article provides rich empirical evidence on the power resources of groups of gig workers based on their nationality, dependence on gig work and right to work in the UK. It intersects workers’ labour market position and migrant (documented and undocumented) and national border regimes to understand varying levels of agency and power. In doing so, this article comparatively shows that differentiating inclusion and exclusion dynamics are intrinsically related to the capacity of workers to develop collective and individual power-building strategies that can improve their working lives.

  • Identifying Trust Exchange Dynamics and Constituents of Employee Trust
           within Management Consulting

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Neve Abgeller, Mark NK Saunders, Reinhard Bachmann, Aneil Mishra
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      Focusing on management consulting firms, this study scrutinizes a core group of knowledge workers revealing the complexity and diversity of meanings attached to their trust-related decisions, emotions and behaviours. Drawing on 50 interviews utilizing critical incident technique with management consultants working in leading UK and US consulting firms, the study offers insights into the complex nature of human interactions and their embeddedness in social contexts. The study provides context-specific insights into an environment that, despite its claims to nurture trust, is inherently riddled with tensions arising from internal competition. Three main constituents are highlighted: (1) trusting trustors and trustworthy trustees; (2) the cruciality of giving and receiving support; and (3) building relationships and developing networks. This study draws on social exchange theory and critically assesses its heuristic explanatory power in the context of the management consulting industry. Further implications for future theory and practice are discussed.

  • Why Do So Many People Not Vote' Correlates of Participation in Trade
           Union Strike Ballots

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ioulia Bessa, Andy Hodder, John Kelly
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      The Trade Union Act (2016) stipulates that in order for a strike to be lawful it must now achieve a turnout of ‘at least 50 per cent’ in addition to a majority vote for strike action in the UK. We know remarkably little about the correlates of voting and even less about the decision to vote or abstain in union strike ballots. We address this gap, drawing from a large-scale survey of Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) members administered shortly after their 2019 national pay strike ballot. Results show a disconnect between the focus of the dispute (pay) and the grievances that motivated participation in the ballot (working conditions). We find that those who do not vote in strike ballots are not neutral or undecided, but are, in many cases, opposed to strike action. Our findings also demonstrate the importance of internal union communication to participation in strike ballots.

  • Integrating Collective Voice within Job Demands–Resources Theory

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Josef Ringqvist
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      Drawing on insights from the sociology of work, this article contributes to job demands–resources (JD-R) theory by arguing that collective employee voice should be considered within the framework as an antecedent of job demands and job resources. An empirical test is offered to substantiate the theoretical argument, hypothesizing that collective voice – measured as trade union influence at the workplace level – reduces job demands and increases job resources. Based on the notion that some jobs may be inherently demanding, an additional hypothesis posits that collective voice balances demands with job resources by supplementing resources particularly where demands are high. Drawing on data from the European Social Survey covering 27 countries, results of multi-level analyses reveal that while not associated negatively with job demands, collective voice enhances job resources, particularly where demands are high. On this basis the article encourages further sociologically informed analyses of the JD-R model.

  • Working like Machines: Technological Upgrading and Labour in the Dutch
           Agri-food Chain

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Karin Astrid Siegmann, Petar Ivošević, Oane Visser
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      This article engages with the role of technological upgrading for work in agriculture, a sector commonly disregarded in debates about the future of work. Foregrounding migrant work in Dutch horticulture, it explores how technological innovation is connected to the scope and security of employment. Besides, it proposes a heuristic that connects workers’ experience to sectoral dynamics and the wider agri-food chain. Our analysis reads data from a small-scale qualitative study with different actors in the Dutch agri-food sector through the lens of the global value chain literature. Nuancing pessimistic predictions of widespread technological unemployment, we find product upgrading into high value-added products, and process upgrading, such as through climate control in greenhouses, to offer the potential for more and secure employment. However, higher work intensity and the dismantling of entitlements for rest and reproduction to ‘make people work like machines’ represent the underbelly of these dynamics.

  • Extreme Lockdowns and the Gendered Informalization of Employment: Evidence
           from the Philippines

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Vincent Jerald Ramos
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      The adverse effects of COVID-19 on labour market outcomes are amplified by and partly attributable to the imposition of extreme mobility restrictions. While gendered disparities in job losses and reduction in working hours are demonstrated in the literature, is an informalization of employment observed, and is this phenomenon likewise gendered' This article analyses the Philippines, a country that imposed one of the world’s longest and strictest lockdowns, and specifically how its imposition affected informal employment. A conceptual and empirical distinction between compositional and survivalist informalization is proffered – the former referring to informality induced by changes in the size and composition of overall employment, and the latter referring to informality induced by the need to work owing to absent sufficient welfare support and precautionary household savings. Examining the regional variation in lockdowns as a quasi-experiment, results demonstrate that extreme lockdowns increased the probability of informal employment among employed women but not among employed men.

  • Medicalisation of Unemployment: An Analysis of Sick Leave for the
           Unemployed in Germany Using a Three-Level Model

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Philipp Linden, Nadine Reibling
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      The study investigates whether sick leave for the unemployed is used to address problems of labour market integration – a process that can theoretically be conceptualised as the medicalisation of unemployment. Estimating a multilevel logistic regression model on a sample of N = 20,196 individuals from the German panel study Labour Market and Social Security (PASS) reveals that, on average, 18% of the unemployed are on sick leave due to poor health. However, given a comparable state of health, the probability increases for men, older individuals and those with lower educational levels. These findings are crucial as they reveal a dual role of sick leave in a context with limited access to disability pensions: as a protective measure for sick, unemployed individuals and as medicalisation of unemployment by excluding those who face non-medical barriers to labour market integration.

      Authors: Aysha Siddika, Peter Lund-Thomsen, Anita Hammer, Marie Vahl, Rayat
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      This article introduces Rayat, a woman garment worker in Bangladesh. It traces how the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated precariousness in the garment value chain and deepened the fragility of Rayat and other garment workers on the frontline. In the article, Rayat explains how her work, household and livelihood changed in response to COVID-19. Her story highlights the importance of contextual influences, distinct industry dynamics and temporal factors, within both workplace and domestic spheres. In complex ways, these dynamics shaped how workers were positioned in the value chain, exploited in the labour process and constrained in their agency.

  • Marketisation and the Public Good: A Typology of Responses among Museum
           Professionals

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jeremy Aroles, Kevin Morrell
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      Across Western democracies, the public sector has undergone significant changes following successive waves of marketisation. Such changes find material expression in an organisation’s logic and associated vocabulary. While marketisation may be adopted, a growing body of research explains how it is often resisted as public sector professionals reject its logic and vocabulary. We contribute to this debate by detailing additional, theoretically important responses. Rather than simply rejecting or adopting both the logic and vocabulary of marketisation, this article shows how UK museum professionals decouple these. Our analysis shows how museum professionals either fashion generic market vocabulary (e.g. customer, value) to pursue local projects or sustain terms such as public and culture to cling to longer-standing ideals of publicness. Partly because of the nature of cultural goods, we propose the museum sector as a paradigm case to illustrate this phenomenon, but our argument has broader implications for the public sphere.

  • Characteristics or Returns: Understanding Gender Pay Inequality among
           College Graduates in the USA

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Joanna Dressel, Paul Attewell, Liza Reisel, Kjersti Misje Østbakken
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      Explanations for the persistent pay disparity between similarly qualified men and women vary between women’s different and devalued work characteristics and specific processes that result in unequal wage returns to the same characteristics. This article investigates how the gender wage gap is affected by gender differences in detailed work activities among full-time, year-round, college-graduate workers in the US using decomposition analysis in the National Survey of College Graduates. Differences in men’s and women’s characteristics account for a majority of the gender wage gap. Additionally, men and women receive different returns to several characteristics: occupational composition, marriage and work activities. While men are penalized more than women for having teaching as their primary work activity, women receive lower rewards for primary work activities such as finance and computer programming. The findings suggest that even with men and women becoming more similar on several characteristics, unequal returns to those characteristics will stall progress towards equality.

  • Parental Exposure to Work Schedule Instability and Child Sleep Quality

      Authors: Allison Logan, Daniel Schneider
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      Recent scholarship has documented the effects of unstable scheduling practices on worker health and well-being, but there has been less research examining the intergenerational consequences of work schedule instability. This study investigates the relationship between parental exposure to unstable and unpredictable work schedules and child sleep quality. We find evidence of significant and large associations between parental exposure to each of five different types of unstable and unpredictable work scheduling practices and child sleep quality, including sleep duration, variability and daytime sleepiness. We are also able to mediate 35–50% of this relationship with measures of work–life conflict, parental stress and well-being, material hardship, and child behaviour. These findings suggest that the effects of the temporal dimensions of job quality extend beyond workers to their children, with implications for the mechanisms by which social inequality is reproduced and for social policies intended to regulate precarious and unequal employment conditions.

  • Inequality Regimes in Coworking Spaces: How New Forms of Organising
           (Re)produce Inequalities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lena Knappert, Boukje Cnossen, Renate Ortlieb
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      Coworking is a rapidly growing worldwide phenomenon. While the coworking movement emphasises equality and emancipation, there is little known about the extent to which coworking spaces as new forms of organising live up to this ideal. This study examines inequality in coworking spaces in the Netherlands, employing Acker’s framework of inequality regimes. The findings highlight coworking-specific components of inequality regimes, in particular stereotyped assumptions regarding ‘ideal members’ that establish the bases of inequality, practices that produce inequality (e.g. through the commodification of community) and practices that perpetuate inequality (e.g. the denial of inequality). The study provides an update of Acker’s framework in the context of coworking and speaks, more broadly, to the growing body of literature on (in)equality in emerging organisational contexts.

      Authors: Julie Monroe, Steve Vincent, Ana Lopes
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      In this article, we focus on gender and class to investigate worktime domestic labour. Methodologically, we extend a novel, comparative critical realist method in which occupation-based and gendered positions in productive and reproductive labour are foregrounded. By building theoretical connections between labour process conditions and collective rule-following practices, we illustrate how inequalities are inscribed organisationally. Our analysis provides a more critical contextualisation of technological affordances to develop the literature on how technology is implicated in the reproduction of social inequality. Moreover, our analysis identifies multi-level causal processes, which combine to explain the presence and actualisation of worktime domestic labour or its absence, which is due, principally, to fear of sanction. For realist researchers interested in diversity-based challenges, absences are important because they can point towards specific discriminatory mechanisms. Our investigation thus revealed a surprising level of class-related in-work inequality within the gendered dynamics of domestic work.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rachael N Pettigrew, Madison Cawdor
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      When doctors determine patients’ life expectancy to be six months or less, patients are considered palliative. Hospice offers care for the terminally ill patient’s body, mind and spirit. As part of the hospice team, chaplains support the spiritual needs of the patient and their family – a challenging and rewarding role. Dr Madison Cawdor shares his extensive experience as a United States-based hospice chaplain and explains the role’s demands, including the importance of both being present with and listening to patients while also employing an interdenominational approach (i.e. supporting regardless of religious practice). Dr Cawdor explores the role’s personal impacts, including being on call, sustained exposure to death and grief, and also the satisfaction of supporting patients. The demand for hospice care is projected to increase dramatically in the coming years, making understanding the demands of and approaches to this work crucial to facilitate both the recruitment and the retention of hospice chaplains.

  • How do parents care together' Dyadic parental leave take-up strategies,
           wages and workplace characteristics

      Authors: Marie Valentova
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      The article explores the association between within-household couples’ parental leave take-up strategies and parents’ earning capacity (hourly wages) and their workplace characteristics. The results, based on the social security register data from Luxembourg, reveal that a couple strategy where both partners take parental leave is more likely when the partners have equal earning capacity, when the mother works in the sector of education, health and social services rather than in other sectors, and when the father is employed in a larger-sized company. Couples where the mother earns more than the father are more likely to opt for a strategy where neither parent takes any leave. The economic sector moderates the effect of fathers’ wages on the probability of choosing the strategy where both partners take leave.

           Academia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Margaretha Järvinen, Nanna Mik-Meyer
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      Universities have changed in recent decades with the introduction of various performance measurement systems, including journal ranking lists. This Bourdieu-inspired article analyses three types of strategies used by male associate professors in response to journal lists: building social capital at conferences and during stays abroad; marketing of research papers to potential reviewers and journal editors; and tactical co-authorship. Drawing on 55 qualitative interviews with male associate professors in the social sciences in Denmark, the article shows that journal lists, and the forms of strategic networking they are associated with, represent a new doxa in higher education. However, it also reveals that participants are unequally positioned when it comes to acting in accordance with performance metrics. Although comprehended as neutral, journal lists are based on (and contribute to) dividing lines between acknowledged and unacknowledged research – lines that tend to pass unnoticed among winners as well as losers in the academic publishing game.

  • Unions, technology and social class inequalities in the US,
           1984–2019

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Saverio Minardi
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      Earnings inequality in the US has risen in recent decades, with social class inequalities being a central component of this trend. While technological change and de-unionisation are considered key contributors to increased earnings dispersion, their specific influence on inequalities between employees’ social classes has received limited attention. This study theoretically and empirically investigates the relationship between technological change, de-unionisation and the earnings trajectories of occupational classes from 1984 to 2019. The empirical analysis uses industry-level time-series cross-section data and industry-level measures of union density, computer investments and class earnings. Descriptive analyses show earnings growth for non-manual classes and stagnant or declining earnings for manual ones. Results provide limited evidence that computerisation affected classes differently in the industries where introduced. In contrast, industry-level de-unionisation reinforced class inequalities in two ways. First, unionisation exhibited a stronger association with lower-class earnings. Second, manual workers were more prevalent in industries that experienced substantial declines in union density.

  • How Institutional Logics Inform Emotional Labour: An Ethnography of Junior
           Doctors

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Priyanka Vedi, Marek Korczynski, Simon Bishop
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      Sociological analysis of emotional labour can be aided by considering how institutional logics inform the performance of emotional labour. We consider the link between institutional logics and emotional labour by conducting an in-depth case study of junior doctors in a large UK hospital. We point to three key institutional logics – bureaucratic, consumerist and professional logics – and show how they inform the emotional labour of junior doctors. We also consider how doctors respond to these logics through enactment processes of choice, resistance and negotiation. In this way, we make an important theoretical contribution by identifying the way that institutional logics relate to the performance of emotional labour. We also make an important empirical contribution by contributing to a growing body of ethnographies on the emotional labour of doctors.

  • Constructing Mobilities: The Reproduction of Posted Workers’
           Disposability in the Construction Sector

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Francesco Bagnardi, Devi Sacchetto, Francesca Alice Vianello
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      Posted work is often framed as a business model based on social dumping. Widespread regulatory evasion is imputed to regulation’s opacity, firms’ predatory practices and trade unions’ inability to organise posted workers. Isolation and precariousness channel posted workers’ agency into individualised reworking or exit strategies. These perspectives, however insightful, focus either on formal regulations, enforcement actors or host countries’ institutional settings. Drawing on biographical interviews with Italian construction workers posted abroad, and semi-structured interviews with non-posted workers and stakeholders of the sector in Italy, the article adopts an actor-centred perspective and mobilises the concept of labour regime to show how its disciplining elements operating in the construction sector in Italy stick with workers during their postings and enhance their disposability. Although this sticky labour regime constrains workers’ agency abroad, it remains continuously contested and offers ways for workers to subvert it and improve their employment conditions.

  • Live Performers’ Experiences of Precarity and Recognition during
           COVID-19 and Beyond

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Philip Hancock, Melissa Tyler
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      COVID-19 devastated the ability of self-employed and freelance live performers working in the UK’s live entertainment industries to sustain a living in an already precarious sector of employment. It also exposed the inadequacies of existing ways of conceptualising precarity in allowing a complete understanding of performers’ experiences of precarious employment, particularly during such a crisis. Combining research into precarity, recognition theory and qualitative data on how such performers experienced and responded to the pandemic, this article identifies two forms of precarity they experienced: socioeconomic and recognitive. In doing so, it contributes to the sociology of work by demonstrating how these two modes of precarity generated considerable operational and existential challenges for performers while extending the conceptualisation of precarity in such a way as to offer a more nuanced understanding of its impact, not only on the livelihoods of those experiencing it but also on their work identities and sense of self.

  • The Impact of Welfare Conditionality on Experiences of Job Quality

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Katy Jones, Sharon Wright, Lisa Scullion
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      This article contributes to emerging debates about how behavioural conditionality within welfare systems influences job quality. Drawing upon analysis of unique data from three waves of qualitative longitudinal interviews with 46 UK social security recipients (133 interviews), we establish that the impact of welfare conditionality is so substantial that it is no longer adequate to discuss job quality without reference to its interconnections to the welfare system. More specifically, we identify how conditionality drives welfare recipients’ experience of four core dimensions of job quality: disempowering and propelling claimants towards inadequate pay, insecurity and poor employment terms, undermining multiple intrinsic characteristics of work and creating what we term a new ‘Work–Life–Welfare balance’. Instead of acting as a neutral arbitrator between jobseekers and employers, the welfare system is exposed as complicit in reinforcing one-sided flexibility through one-sided conditionality, by emphasising intensive job-seeking, while leaving poor-quality work provided by employers unchecked.

  • Relational Responsibilisation and Diversity Management in the 21st
           Century: The Case for Reframing Equality Regulation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Steve Vincent, Ana Lopes, Elina Meliou, Mustafa Özbilgin
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      This article critiques equality regulation within neoliberal policy regimes and suggests an alternative. We argue that, globally, neoliberal regimes exacerbate social divisions by individualising responsibilities for addressing inequalities. Consequentially, a new policy direction for equality regulation is required. Using the UK economy as an exemplar, we make the case for relational responsibilisation, which involves raising awareness of workplace inequalities on an international basis; attributing responsibility for inequalities onto specific socioeconomic causes and institutions; and systematically developing policies and practices that extend accountability for and ameliorate the negative consequences of workplace inequalities. Theoretically, Bourdieusian social critique and realist sociological imagination are used to conceive responsibilisation in relational terms and to imagine a policy agenda that might make societies more responsible for tackling the forms of inequality they produce. Our overall argument is for the creation of a new equality, diversity and inclusion-aware form of social democracy.

  • How Work Hour Variability Matters for Work-to-Family Conflict

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hyojin Cho, Susan J Lambert, Emily Ellis, Julia R Henly
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      Variable work hours are an understudied source of work-to-family conflict (WFC). We examine the relationships between the magnitude and direction of work hour variability and WFC and whether work hour control and schedule predictability moderate these relationships. We estimate a series of linear regressions using the 2016 US General Social Survey, examining women and men workers separately and together. Findings indicate that as the magnitude of work hour variability increases, so does WFC, controlling for the usual number of hours worked. Work hour control helps to protect workers, especially women, from WFC when work hour variability is high and hours surge. Although schedule predictability tempers the relationship between work hour variability and WFC, its potency diminishes as variability increases. Our study emphasizes the potential benefit to workers and families of government policies and employer practices that promote work hour stability, schedule predictability, and equity in employee work hour control.

  • ‘Divergent Work Ageing’ and Older Migrants’ (Un)extended
           Working Lives

      Authors: Sajia Ferdous
      Abstract: Work, Employment and Society, Ahead of Print.
      This article theorises older ethnic minority women’s work attitudes and labour market behaviour from an intersectional cumulative perspective within the extended working lives contexts. Empirical evidence has been drawn from interviews with South Asian British Muslim women aged between 50 and 66 living in Greater Manchester, UK. The findings show that the cohort’s ageing process is asynchronous with the British work ageing outlook as their cultural understanding of working age, age roles and successful ageing defies the extended working lives philosophies, and cumulative factors including caring responsibilities, legacy inequalities, and health issues present additional challenges for extending their work lives. Their culture- and context-specific work ageing process remains absent in the UK’s labour market discourse and policy landscape. The article theorises their idiosyncratic work ageing including non-conformist attitudes to extending work lives by proposing a ‘divergent work ageing’ model that can guide policymakers in creating inclusive labour market policies.
