ABSTRACT

Multinational Companies and Domestic Firms in Europe compares and contrasts wages, working conditions and industrial relations processes in multinational and domestic companies. Very little academic study has hitherto been devoted to the differences that may or may not exist between the wages and conditions that multinational enterprises (MNEs) routinely offer compared to those of domestic companies with whom they compete. The analysis in this book covers five sectors of the economy and 13 EU countries. This book is an effort to map the social effects of foreign direct investment (FDI) in a number of EU member states, in relation to the prevailing patterns of internationalization. The need to examine critically the labour market and industrial relations aspects of recent waves of FDI is both timely and compelling.
