Race, Class, and Gender at Work: Divisions in Labor

Description:
The workplace is one of the most important arenas in which race, gender and class inequality is created or reproduced. This course explores how and why race, class and gender shape employees' experiences in the workplace and in communities. We will focus on questions of how to define race, class and gender at work; how historic divisions have impacted inequality in the U.S. in the past and today; how work is changing in the US (lower levels of unionization, increased inequality, rise in low wage work, etc.): how workers have responded to these changes in the workplace; and how unions, worker organizations, and public policy have or have not addressed these critical issues.
