Work Sharing during the Great Recession: New Developments and Beyond (SUMMARY)

This volume examines the resurgent interest in and use of work sharing as a job preservation strategy during the Great Recession of 2008–09. It also considers the crisis experience for the potential use of work sharing to generate jobs, thus contributing to the ongoing debate on its efficacy as an employment creation measure. The book offers in-depth analysis of work sharing in Europe – specifically in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany and the Netherlands – and in the diverse contexts of Japan, Turkey, the United States and Uruguay. It synthesizes the main lessons learned from the country cases and considers their implications for the future of work sharing.
