Working in East German socialism in 1980 and in capitalism 15 years later: A trend analysis of a transitional economy's working conditions

Research output: Journal contributionsJournal articlesResearchpeer-review


Many studies document the changes that have taken place in the new German states, the former German Democratic Republic (GDR), since the end of socialism. Most research looks at the changes that took place after the unification of East and West Germany, but little is known about the differences between the present, somewhat settled situation in the new German states and the stable situation in the GDR before the system change.
