Abstract

The manufacturing sector, once a major source of urban employment and consisting of a large percentage of skilled and semi-skilled, middle-income jobs, has declined, while the service sector, predominantly comprising either high-skill, high-pay or low-skill, low-pay jobs, has grown. Jacqueline Borel-Saladin argues that the decline of manufacturing and the growth of the service sector does not result in a more polarised occupational structure.
