|Title:||Sub-Contracting, Small-Batch Production and Home-Based Women Workers||Contributor(s):||Wright, Denis Arthur (author)||Publication Date:||2004||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1783||Abstract:||The practice of sub-contracting in industry has grown markedly as a tool of production in global commodity chains over the past 30 years. The reasons include: the portability of multinational corporations’ operations, consistent with economic globalization; cross-border production networks associated with cost-cutting benefits for manufacturers and entrepreneurs; and the demand for flexibility in production output. Sub-contracting arrangements are also associated with avoidance of national and international regulations, particularly as they relate to labour standards.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Women Workers in Industrialising Asia: Costed, Not Valued, p. 129-148||Publisher:||Palgrave Macmillan||Place of Publication:||Basingstoke, New York||ISBN:||0333962931||Field of Research (FOR):||210302 Asian History||HERDC Category Description:||B1 Chapter in a Scholarly Book||Other Links:||http://us.macmillan.com/womenworkersinindustrialisingasia||Series Name:||Studies in the Economies of East and South-East Asia||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 38
