"Skill Requirements at Work: Rhetoric Versus Reality"
by Darrah, Charles (1994)
The role of education in preparing the workforce is affected by the changing nature of work. The latter is typically described by a concept of skill requirements that is used to analyze jobs and workers. This concept is based upon three tenets, each of which mold our understanding of work. Fieldwork conducted in four workplaces is used to assess and critique these tenets and the picture of work they support. Suggestions for alternative analyses are discussed.
