Knowledge Workers in the Information Society

By Catherine McKercher, Vincent Mosco - 2008

Knowledge Workers in the Information Society edited by Catherine McKercher and Vincent Mosco addresses the changing nature of work, workers, and their organizations in the media, information, and knowledge industries. These knowledge workers include journalists, broadcasters, librarians, filmmakers and animators, government workers, and employees in the telecommunications and high tech sectors. Technological change has become relentless. Corporate concentration has created new pressures to rationalize work and eliminate stages in the labour process. Globalization and advances in telecommunications have made real the prospect that knowledge work will follow manufacturing labour to parts of the world with low wages, poor working conditions, and little unionization.

Communication rights enable all people everywhere to express themselves individually and collectively by all means of communication. They are vital to full participation in society and are, therefore, universal human rights belonging to every man, woman, and child.
