These data were collected under the direction of William S. Hoffman. Funds for the study were provided to the Michigan Health and Social Security Research Institute by the Michigan Health Care Research and Education Foundation; the United Auto Workers Union provided partial support. The paper's views are those of its authors and should not be construed as the positions of these funding sources. We are especially grateful to the men and women of the UAW whose experiences and views form this investigation. We also thank Donald Ephlin, Ernest Lofton, and Stanley Marshall of the UAW for their support and cooperation. We are indebted to Richard Price for advice on the survey, and to Pat Alting, Daisy Quarm, and anonymous reviewers for their helpful advice. This is a revised version of a paper presented at the annual meeting of the North Central Sociological Association, April 1989.
