work situation

work situation

the social relationships which workers enter into at their workplace. For LOCKWOOD (1958 and 1966) and GOLDTHORPE and Lockwood et al. (1968a), three interrelated dimensions of social stratification are significant in influencing a person's position within the stratification system: ‘work situation’, as well as MARKET SITUATION and STATUS SITUATION. For example, the fact that routine white-collar workers are more likely than manual workers to rub shoulders with management, is one reason for differences in their class consciousness and political attitudes
