In much of this book we have concentrated on analysing the experience of homeworking and on exploring the reasons why firms in a variety of circumstances adopt homeworking for all or part of their production. In this chapter we want to consider similarities between homeworking and certain other forms of employment, so far as conditions of work are concerned. We argue that the restructuring of the British economy is leading to the casualisation of employment for many people, whose terms and conditions of employment are beginning to resemble homeworkers in important ways. Hence it is necessary to broaden the discussion to incorporate a fuller exploration of some of the features of the process of restructuring in Britain and of the rationales which are used to support it.
