The Quest for the Optimal Labour Conditions. A Study of Suboptimal Dilemmas. (English)
Abstract [en]

Labour and its conditions is a subject constantly in focus. Therefore this study aims to shed some light on different factors which constitutes the basis for the definition of optimal labour conditions, as well as creating a need for change of labour conditions. In this case these factors are changes in society and cultures. The study describes how different levels of society - government, employer and employee – are affected by, or wishes to affect the labor conditions in terms of location, working hours and leisure. In brief this study concerns how different goals and interests results in different definitions of the optimum at the different levels. For instance the goal of the state is to increase its GNP to better compete with other nations. The goal of the employer is, among other things, to increase the company’s profits and conquer the market. The employee’s interest, on the other hand, is mainly to get resources for survival and better terms of life.
