Abstract

While acknowledging the difficulties inherent in a comparative approach to labor and employment ordering issues, the author argues that our times and circumstances force us to consider such a perspective. This essay looks at the some of the background and characteristics of the labor law regimes of the United States and Germany to reflect on where we have been and where we might be going, and concludes that we stand at the edge of a new world, one that may well entail a new culture of work and new ways of being for all its inhabitants.
