Questions related to International and Comparative Labor
How could one measure changes (improvements) in conditions of employment across many countries and over periods of several years? Are there any datasets readily available? And what specific indicators one could seek (assuming increase in wages would be one such obvious indicator, what else?} And is there any literature on this topic you're familiar with?
I'm looking for alternatives to the collective bargaining model currently forming the basis of labour legislation in North America.
Is there any research, empirical data or case studies about Canadian and Quebecois work culture and their typical team processes or their ways of working together?
Are there any studies about "cross-Canadian" team work (particularly Quebecois working together with people from the rest of Canada) in any way? Or research about Canadian and Quebecois collaborating with Germans?
My aim is to analyse what implications may arise within global working groups consisting of Quebecois and Canadians, and what can go wrong when Canadian and German teams have to collaborate (as well as how to prevent or stem these problems).
I would appreciate very much if you would share your knowledge about Canadian, Quebecois, and German teamwork and collaboration (maybe also outcomes/effectiveness of their communication) in any sense, and I am grateful for every hint on where to find publications about this. Many thanks in advance!
