Dr Ben Snyder is lecturer in Sociology & Social Policy at Victoria University. He shadowed truck drivers, Wall Street traders and unemployed workers in the United States for several months, reveals the precarious nature of America's workforce. A lecturer in Victoria's School of Social and Cultural Studies, Ben is turning his experiences, originally documented for his PhD, into a book, which examines how the American workplace has changed over the last 30 years. He believes the experiences of United States workers reflects a wider global trend, to which the New Zealand workplace is not immune.
