Labor and Work

Questia, your online research library and paper writing resource, contains thousands of scholarly articles and books about Labor and Work.

The study of Labor and Work often focuses on types of labor, labor laws, and labor movements. Types of labor have varied historically, depending on the development of a country. Early in the history of many Western societies, slavery and indentured servitude were popular forms of free labor. The laws and systems that allowed for forced labor eventually deteriorated, however inequality in the workforce has remained a prominent issue. The difference in wages and treatment of marginalized groups (e.g. women, LGBTQ, people of color) is still an area of political debate.
