    Our lives are shaped by the kind of work we do - or by the lack of it. Work, be it clerical, industrial or domestic, is central to contemporary society, not just for survival but for the status and meaning it gives our lives. Working Life examines the historical and social forces that have shaped the organization and regulation of work in Australian society, encompassing industrialism, trade unions, migrants and 'dirty work', technological change and unpaid domestic work. Belinda Probert also tackles the social ramifications of current changes in our working lives, looking at the impact of information technology, women's increasing involvement in paid work, the growth of part-time work, and the spectre of increased unemployment.
