Title Changing inequality in work injuries and work timing
Bibliographic information Oct. 1999, Vol.122, No.10, p.22-30. Illus. Bibl.ref.
Abstract This paper analyses the changes in the distribution of work timing and injury incidence in the U.S. working population since 1973. The burdens of working at undesirable times, during evenings and at night, and the risk of occupational injury have increasingly been borne by lower-wage workers. Inequality in earnings has also widened.
