This article describes, and analyses the phenomenon of organisation downsizing and the experience of worker displacement as a process of work and employment change that occurs within the context of structural changes in the economy, large companies and labour markets. Given recent developments in American and global economic and employment trends, some researchers have called for more social science research on work and employment issues in this 'era of flexibility and mobility'. Workers' experiences of downsizing, displacement and employment change were not simply, or even primarily, associated with job loss, but were characterised by significant departure from objective conditions and subjective meanings of work and of being workers.
