This article has two features. The first offers a brief overview of the purpose and character of radical social science, specially, labour process analysis, and its shortcomings in this respect. The second highlights how challenging current orthodox thinking about the future of work and employment can be used to overcome those shortcomings. It outlines one possible reworking of this orthodoxy to exploit it to push for amelioration of that work and employment. More specifically, a critique of knowledge work is complemented with suggestions drawn from a wide range of evidence-based secondary literature on work and employment with the purpose of indicating how the current knowledge economy policy agenda can be turned to create the potential for the ‘better job’.
