Summary "Young Workers: Varieties of Experience" reveals the complexities of young people's transition from school into the world of work. Examining both part-time and full-time workers, this book paints a detailed portrait of how young workers experience their first jobs, how they form their attitudes and beliefs about work, and how current economic and social conditions shape their experience. /// Chapters investigate the costs and benefits of part-time work, how income is used, young people's salary expectations, the experience of unemployment, child labor and underground economies, occupational health and safety issues, and young people's experience of and attitudes toward labor unions. /// The contributors' research highlights the diversity of both the young workers themselves and the complexities of their experience in the labor market. This book will be of interest to a broad audience of developmental, social, and industrial/organizational psychologists as well as sociologists. Readers interested in the development, growth, and organizational implications of youth employment will find this book informative. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved).
