About the product

Across the centuries, the international division of labor has included a variety of translocal circuits for the mobility of labor and capital, many of which still exist today. This paper examines the incipient formation of the global labor markets at the top and at the bottom of the economic system. It focuses on the two sites that comprise the two global labor markets, on the global south and the global north: one site is the global city, another- is a set of global south countries. The gender issue is also broadly discussed in the publication as women are the key labor supply and secure the necessary functions in global cities.
