Summary
This Workplace Ethnography project generated content-coded data from the full population of book-length English language organizational ethnographies.

A series of questions addressed job satisfaction, pay, benefit package, job security, effort bargain, conflict with management/supervisors, training, worker strategies, conditions of consent/compliance, and nature of consent/c...
