  Course Description
This course is an introduction to the sociology of work. Its focus is the relationship between work and equality/inequality, specifically how inequality is produced and reproduced in the workplace. Students begin with some of the classical and contemporary theorists of work before turning to the sociological literature on class and inequality. The focus is on how class (as measured by education, occupation, earnings, and wealth) structures opportunities for upward mobility. Additional topics include reviews of workplace transitions (in terms of worker demographics, occupations, culture, and the economy) and recent research in the sociology of work, moving beyond traditional human capital explanations for workplace inequality to examine a number of more subtle mechanisms of inequity.
