Shows that the conditions for a control trade‐off were also met during the period of structural adjustment, which lasted from the mid‐1980s to the early 1990s and beyond. It examines restrictive work practices, the impact of corporatism on labour market flexibility, skills and training, and the increase in workers’ control required by the growth of quality competitive customized production. The chapter also shows that a trade‐off would be feasible even if workers were solely concerned with their material well‐being and suggests that pursuing greater co‐determination and increasing control over the organization of work and training is a particularly promising strategy during such a period.
