Topic is: Since the 1980’s employment has changed dramatically. It has become considerably more precarious, predicated increasingly on casual, flexible, low and un-skilled positions. At many points in time this has meant considerable unemployment. Why has the labour market been so considerably restructured? Discuss through either Smith, Marx or Keynes.
