Abstract [en]

The paper analyzes the contemporary organizational restructuring of production and work and derives some salient implications for the labor market. The analysis focuses on the switch from occupational specialization at "Tayloristic" organizations to multi-tasking at "holistic" organizations. The restructuring process is shown to create demands for new combinations of skills and thereby "resegment" the labor market, raising the wages and job opportunities of some workers relative to others.
