manager

a person exercising responsibility for the coordination and control of work organizations. Managers are commonly divided into three strata: senior, middle and front-line, indicating a wide social and economic disparity within the category The top echelons of managers include highly paid executives of multinational corporations, whilst the lowest include foremen who may earn little more than the manual workers they work beside and supervise. In recent debates, the main issue has concerned the class location of managers (Abercombie and Urry, 1983) which can be viewed as a continuation and extension of the older MANAGERIAL REVOLUTION debate.
