Youth at Work provides valuable insights into the world of youth employment in the retail and service fields.

Youth at Work provides valuable insights into the world of youth employment in the retail and service fields. It has also sounded the alarm over the conditions that prevail in such industries despite the existence of unions, and illustrated the importance of age (and life stage) in studies of non-standard work. His investigation challenges a rethink of our understanding of 'youth stopgap workers' and our conception of the potential of unions.

This clear, well-written study by Tannock (education, Berkeley) reveals that teenage workers in North America are regularly exploited by their service-sector employers, who hold them to minimum-wage.

Stuart Tannock April 2001. The Literacies of Youth Workers and Youth Workplaces. Sixteen-year old Jonathan Gregor had just started working as a grocery bagger when he was faced with what he considered to be a moral dilemma at work. Baggers in North American supermarkets are often expected to perform janitorial duties: emptying garbage cans, sweeping floors, mopping up spills, and (most dreaded of all) cleaning up staff bathrooms.

Despite their importance to the service economy, young workers are often ignored or stereotyped by researchers, policymakers, and trade unions. This interview-based study of 95 young unionized fast-food and grocery workers in two cities in the U.S. and Canada presents a detailed account of their experiences in their workplaces and in their unions. These young workers vividly describe their daily tasks of frying, serving, bagging, stocking, and cleaning up, and the pressures from management and customers that surround these tasks. Management control tactics they encounter include video surveillance, drug testing, and monitoring of worker service scripts by mystery shoppers. The workers also document the hazards - muscle injuries, burns, and robberies - and the responsibilities of
