Social Aspects of Industry: A Survey of Labor Problems and Causes of Industrial Unrest

By S. Howard Patterson | Go to book overview
Although there are many striking illustrations of successful profit sharing, many of these attempts have been short-lived or restricted in scope. A successful enterpriser and far-sighted employees seem essential to the success of profit sharing. Many plans of profit sharing have led to internal dissentions or have failed to provide a strong incentive to increased production. The success of profit sharing seems to depend as much on general market conditions as on the productivity of the workers.Within the United States, employee representation and profit sharing have generally been inaugurated by employers rather than by the workers or by governmental legislation. They have frequently been accompanied by intensive personnel work within the plant and by extensive welfare programs outside the plant. Employee representation and profit sharing usually have been twin elements in the comprehensive plans of various employers for the economic betterment of their own workers.
