Six Views about a Wood Products Labor Force, Most of Which May Be Wrong
Abstract:The prospect of a declining timber supply in the Douglas-fir region suggests that assumptions about labor force adaptability will be used strategically in the political process. In Oregon, the labor force situation turns out to be quite different from what is commonly held or assumed. In particular, high labor turnover is found to be a rational adaptation to the nature of the industry.
