Multinationals and labour: a review of contemporary issues and concerns


  • Peter Enderwick



In the past ten years there has been comparatively little research on the topic of multinational enterprises (MNEs) and labour despite the continuing importance of such issues and the emergence of new concerns. This paper discusses a number of current concerns and summarises relevant evidence. In the late 1980s the major issues relate to employment stability and the introduction of innovative labour practices. A number of very recent concerns include service sector MNEs, safety issues, racism and the problems of women workers within MNEs.
