Dr. Gordon Cooke’s primary area of research is non-standard work (i.e. temporary, on-call, casual jobs and all types of work scheduling variations). This has led to examinations of the differences in working conditions between older versus younger workers, between urban versus rural workers, and/or between individuals in Newfoundland and those in other locations like Ontario, Ireland and beyond.
Active Research Interests:
Employee Effects of Non-Standard Work Schedules.
Job satisfaction among older workers.
Work schedules among older workers.
Young Workers in Ontario's Rural Labour Market.
Rural vs. urban employment options and quality differences.
Past Research Interests:

Who Is Declining Training In Canada?
