Abstract: The chapter argues for the importance of understanding worker agency in emotional labour. It presents data from a life history study in order to explore the ways in which workers experience and negotiate expectations of emotional compliance and surveillance, and argues that class and gender intersect not only with one another but are inflected through individuals' indentity and life stage.
