The paper concludes by stating that work needs to be done to find a strategy that will satisfy both capital and labour.

From the Paper:

''Canadian workers are seeing an increase in work conflicts, stress, hazardous work environments, and job dissatisfaction due to long-term unemployment, globalization, labour market polarization, and technological changes which is leading to a gradual dismantling of individual self worth and family structures. Management, governments, unions and labour can reform work through different management theologies addressing these concerns and create a more productive, satisfying and participative organization. Although, these groups cause of many of the issues relating to work reform and by extension make reformation difficult.
''Generally, satisfying work first can be characterized by financial rewards but as Krahn and Lowe state, "wages cannot neutralize the impact of what earners are obliged to do for over one-third of their waking hours, year in and year out," which shows alone money is not the only factor on levels of worker alienation and dissatisfaction.''
