This book investigates hard work and new and expanding jobs in Europe. The interrelationship between the labour market and welfare regimes, and quality of work and life is played out at many levels: the institutional; the organizational level of the company and its customers or clients; and the level of everyday life at the workplace and beyond it.

"This volume examines the configuration and factors that shape `hard work' on the European level and the national sectors. ... In addition, this work explores the connections between the structural and the objective conditions of `hard work', its subjective meaning and its impact on workers' life and sense of belonging. ... the reading of this book is recommended for those who are interested in labor and its conditions as a complex social issue." (Damian R. Molgaray, Applied Research in Quality of Life, Vol. 11, 2016)
