The dot-com boom of the late 1990s marked the coming of age of the much-heralded New Economy, an economic, technological, and social transformation that was decades in the making. A highly mobile, and in many cases highly compensated, workforce faces a multitude of new risks: Jobs are no longer secure nor insulated from global competition, employer-provided health benefits are drying up, and retirement planning is almost entirely the responsibility of employees themselves. This timely book examines the challenges facing high-tech workers and other professionals and the relevance of these struggles for the future of the economy. Written by leading experts, Surviving the New Economy shows how people working in technology industries are addressing their concerns via both traditional collective bargaining and through innovative actions. Using case studies from the United States and abroad, the authors in this collection examine how highly skilled workers are surviving in a global economy in which the rules have changed-and how they are reshaping their workplaces in the process.
