Good Jobs, Bad Jobs: The Growth of Polarized and Precarious Employment Systems in the United States, 1970s to 2000s at UT International House

Monday, 24 March, 2014

A Lecture by Dr. Arne Kalleberg

Dr. Arne Kalleberg is currently the Kenan Distinguished Professor of Sociology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is also an Adjunct Professor in the departments of Public Policy, Global Studies, and Business Management.

This lecture will focus on Dr. Kalleberg's most recent book: Good Jobs, Bad Jobs: The Growth of Polarized and Precarious Employment Systems in the United States, 1970s to 2000s (2011). This book was awarded the 2012 Academy of Management's George R. Terry Book Award.

Dr. Kalleberg's research systematically examines changes in U.S. job markets, economic policy, and labor organizing over three decades. He identifies several trends that have contributed to the rise in economic inequality, the decline of the middle class, and an increasingly polarized and precarious workforce. 

Presented by the Sociology Graduate Student Association Sponsored by Ready for the World, the Department of Sociology and the Department of Political Science
