Going beyond slogans and superficial explanations, the authors analyze the reasons why so many jobs disappeared from the Canadian economy in the 1990s.
Drawing on the results of a major three-year research project, the authors offer 25 case studies of Canadian companies from five key sectors of the economy. Included are examples from the resource sector, manufacturing, the low-wage service sector, information services and the public sector. Their findings permit them to suggest concrete steps that can be taken to remedy job losses.
Vanishing Jobs is an in-depth study of Canadian business and labour-market trends in the 1990s.

"[Vanishing Jobs offers a perceptive analysis of the state of Canadian industry."

- Dave Bennett Canadian Book Review Annual

"Co-authors Lars Osberg, Fred Wien and Jan Grude discuss what business and governments can do to ease job loses during this transition in a book with the working title Vanishing Jobs."

- Scott Anderson Quill & Quire

"This book looks at the impact computer technology has had primarily in the traditional work place, where machine is replacing man and how those businesses are coping with the change."

- Ottawa Sun

"This book is an example of the richness of analysis possible from information that connects labour demand and labour supply information... some of the thinking behind the methodology of Vanishing Jobs has proved to be an important spur and guide to the development of such data in Canada..."

- Miles Corak Canadian Journal of Economics
