INDEPENDENT STUDIES

IDS 326-001 Work in Contemporary America (online) (3)
In the last fifty years we have witnessed a significant transformation in how we as individuals understand work and how technology and immigration have radically restructured labor markets in the United States and around the world. As a result, this course examines how work has changed since the industrial revolution. In particular we will examine the entry of women in to the formal sector of the labor economy, immigrant labor, outsourcing, wages, the impact of technology such as email and new media on work. Also, given the most recent “Great Recession” we will also examine how this economic downturn has changed the dynamics of work in America. Thus, we will examine how women now outnumber men in the labor force, the role of the labor movement, and the response of the government to a jobless recovery.
