Topics in Policy Analysis (Half-Term): Defining and Claiming Workers Rights

SPI 594Q

Info tab content
The last two years have seen increased calls for unionization (Amazon/Starbucks), a surge in strikes, new forced labor cases tied to H2A visas. Questions about extreme wage and income inequities, health and safety risks, and the future of work dominate the headlines. But what to do? In this seminar we will address the history of labor unions in the United States and new models for unions; Worker-driven Social Responsibility as a new model for protecting workers' human rights; and the future for defining, claiming, and protecting workers' human rights of fair pay, safe working conditions, and dignity at work.
