Labor

  • 28322 entries

Labor is a general term with several meanings. As a noun, it refers generally to "work," but has a blue-collar connotation — a factory employee labors, an accountant works. When used opposite "management," it refers to the workforce of a company or concern, as opposed to the upper tiers of administration.
Labor-related concerns in modern society include:
•    representation for the rights of workers (in the form of labor unions)
•    the guarantee of good working conditions and fair treatment (and the abolishment of sweat shops)
•    fair compensation (including issues such as a minimum wage or wage discrimination against women or minorities)

Labor covers all issues related to employment, including labor laws, employment statistics, unions, and other issues related to work.
