The secondary sector is defined by employment in the manufacturing and the construction industries which serve to produce goods. The third category classified as tertiary involves the provision of services such as banking, health, education, insurance, restaurants and hotels. Notably, the tertiary sector relies immensely on the information. According to Canadian statistics, the beginning of the 20th century saw 45% of the labor force having jobs in the primary sector (Winston & Edelbach, 2014). On the other hand, 165 of the entire work force were in the secondary sector. However, there is evidence that these statistics have changed immensely, as will be described below.

This is because capitalism has taken advantage of the emerging technologies and utilized it in mass production, hence eroding the function of hand workers. Moreover, such use of technology has served to increase the need for organization and management of the labor process. There are fears that the future may see more degradation of work. However, there are scholars who believe that, new office technologies specifically computers and other computer based communication systems are likely to introduce more forms of employment. According to the evidence obtained from Canada, it emerges that, the computer and the information technology registered new areas that required the economic activity, but that did not exist before. Notably, as this form of technology became more and more enhanced, organizations realized the value of technology in introducing new structures in the manufacturing industry (Winston & Edelbach, 2014). Moreover, the value of technology in large bureaucracies belonging to public and private
