Cheap wage labour; race and gender in the fisheries of British Columbia

Montreal: McGill-Queen's University Press, 1996. x, 314p., maps, tables, dj.

"Using the fishing industry in British Columbia as a case study, Alicja Muszynski explores how Marx's labour theory of value can be applied to a specific industry and the creation of a specific labour force. She reworks Marx's theory in order to incorporate race and gender as principles that not only created a proletarianized labour force but also legitimized the payment of low wages to particular groups." - front.
