Exploitation, Stagnant Wages and Underemployment in Advanced Capitalism: A Canadian Perspective

  • D.W. Livingstone

Abstract

In the current context of heightened worker productivity, stagnant wages and increasing exploitation, underemployment of wellqualified workers is also increasing. Basic features of underemployment include time-based, skill-based and intensity of effort. Recent empirical estimates of these features of underemployment in Canada are
summarized. Prospects for reducing current levels of underemployment are also briefly considered.
