The Affluent Worker Industrial Attitudes and Behaviour

Author: John H. Goldthorpe
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521094666
Release Date: 1968-07-01
Genre: Social Science

The affluent workers studied in this book, originally published in 1968, were employees of three major industrial concerns sited in Luton at the time. The three firms were selected as being amongst Luton's best-paying employers and also on account of their advanced personnel and labour relations policies. This choice enabled comparisons to be made between workers engaged in very different types of production system. On the basis of material from interviews and other data, the authors examine in detail workers' experience of their industrial jobs, their relations with workmates, and the nature of their attachment both to the organizations which employ them and to their trade unions. This study forms part of a larger project which was aimed at testing empirically the thesis, which was most prevalent 1968, that of the progressive assimilation of manual workers and their families into the pattern of middle class social life.

Soziale Herkunft und Hochschulzugang

Author: Kai Maaz
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783531904412
Release Date: 2007-10-28
Genre: Education

Im Zentrum der Arbeit steht die Analyse sozialer Disparitäten im Bildungssystem, insbesondere des Hochschulzugangs. Diese werden sowohl aus einer bildungssoziologischen als auch aus einer erziehungswissenschaftlichen (schulstrukturellen) Perspektive betrachtet. Der Forschungsstand zur Wirkung primärer und sekundärer Disparitäten wird dadurch erweitert, dass beide Wirkmechanismen voneinander getrennt werden und eine mehrperspektivische Analyse der Vermittlung sekundärer Disparitäten vorgenommen wird.

Affluent Workers Revisited

Author: Fiona Devine
ISBN: STANFORD:36105004058934
Release Date: 1992-01
Genre: Social Science

Fiona Devine's important new book offers a qualitative re-evaluation of the Affluent Worker study conducted by John Goldthorpe and his colleagues in Luton nearly thirty years ago. Drawing on her intensive interviews with Vauxhall workers and their wives, Devine examines the motivations, processes and consequences of geographical mobility and explores working-class lifestyles and the extent to which they may be described as privatised or communal. Contrary to the predictions of the older study, Devine's findings suggest that working-class lifestyles are neither exclusively family-centred, nor entirely home-centred. No evidence of a singular instrumentalism appears; instead aspirations for material well being form a crucial component of a collective working-class identity, with criticism of the trade unions and the Labour Party being directed at their failure to change the distribution of resources in Britain.
