STRUCTURAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ALIENATION Seeman and Anderson (1983) note that the alienation paradigm has more than one domain, but they seem reluctant to convey an appreciation of the socialstructural domain (they do not cite or discuss Kohn's 1976 analysis of alienation) or to provide an explanation for the unexpected combination of the domains that they found in their data. In order to assess the effects of these domains, we use Kohn and his associates' measure of substantive complexity to index the social- Employed Adults at Risk 31 structural domain of alienated labor and to develop our own measures of powerlessness and self-estrangement as indices for the psychological domain.

In a complex but rich descriptive analysis, Kaye Middleton Fillmore compares the relationship between occupational subcultures and drinking behaviors in three pairs of occupations, with social class common in each pair. In the preface to her chapter, Fillmore draws important distinctions between considerations of alcoholism, problem drinking, and drinking, all of which have differential salience to employers. She emphasizes the extent to which researchers in the alcohol/work specialty have tended to ignore drinking behaviors and have instead concentrated their efforts on problem drinking and alcoholism.

This decline cannot be attributed to an increase in abstainers, because they continue to remain relatively constant—slightly over one-third of the drinking age population. Thus the population on the whole drinks less than it did five years ago. The alcoholic beverage industry should not expect any increase in overall per capita consumption in the next decade; moreover, the decline in per capita consumption should continue at its modest rate given the aging population. In summary, the aging labor force should be characterized by a more mature worker on the whole, one who is more concerned with stability of employment than his youthful counterpart.
