|Title:||Regional Manufacturing Employment: The Soap and Detergent Sub-Industry In Ontario, 1962-1984|
|Abstract:||<p> This thesis examines the influence of size and ownership of plants on the employment characteristics and locational behaviour of plants. The variables utilized to attain this objective were: foreign and Canadian-owned plants; single and multi-plants; plant, office and executive employment; location of plants within Toronto Census Metropolitan Area; and location of plants among aggregated areas in Ontario. Two methods were used in analysing the data. First, the mean of plant and employment data were obtained to provide employment characteristics. Second, regression analysis was performed to obtain in what areas there was a growth or decline of plants and employment. </p> <p> The result of the study show that foreign-owned plants employ a greater proportion of unskilled labour and are growing in reletively rural areas. On the other hand, single plants employ a greater proportion of executives and are growing within the outskirts of the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area. </p>|
