The results of the study portray a quite compelling but disturbing accont of employment conditions for retail workers in the lates 1990s. Questions are also raised about the lack of research in the secondary labour market. Despite the concerns of so many about equity in the labour market, why have so few researchers actually set out to test their concerns? The lack of available information about those workers who are most likely to have been adversely affected by the legislation is indicative of the value such workers are accorded in our current society.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||New Zealand Journal of Employment Relations||Journal:||New Zealand Journal of Employment Relations||Volume:||25||Issue:||1||Start page:||1||End page:||17||Keywords:||Employment Contracts Act 1991; Secondary labour market; Contracts; Remuneration; Employee opinions||Other versions:||https://www.nzjournal.org/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISSN:||0110-0637||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
