Description:

The paper discusses how perspectives on the master-servant relations have undergone significant changes since the Montreal fur trade, between 1780 and 1821, where employer and worker relations were based mostly on a master-servant (employer-worker) relationship.

The paper addresses the hypothesis proposed by Pearce, that workers respond to different types of relationships with their employers, and explains how this demonstrates that good labour relations result from invested interests from all members within the company.
