Abstract:

Utilizing feminist standpoint theory this study explores how one group of women experienced the chronic threat of job loss. An interpretive case study method along with a thematic content analysis was utilized to explore the research question "how do one group of women experience the chronic threat of job loss?" Twelve women who worked for the same organization for over twenty-five years were interviewed about their experiences with the chronic threat of job loss. The women in this group were under constant threat of office closings and layoffs due to mergers, contract negotiations and strikes. Consequences the women suffered were emotional strain, isolation, fear and anger along with the chronic threat that material goods (a company pension) would be lost. The unique aspect of this study is that both the threat of job loss and its consequences were chronic in nature and the consequences are prevalent in the discursive practices shared by the women in this study.
