NEED FOR IMMEDIATE ACTION BY SOCIOLOGISTS
To my fellow members of the American Sociological Association:
National Science Foundation (NSF) research funding for the social sciences is threatened with a 45% cut in a bill that will be debated on the House floor during the week of May 18. I urge you to write to your member of Congress before that debate.
You can do this easily right now. Go to the COSSA Action Center to sign up and take action by asking your representative to oppose the America COMPETES Act of 2015 (H.R. 1806).
A new edited volume on Immigration and Work was recently published by OOW member Jody Angius Vallejo (University of Southern California) in Research in the Sociology of Work. This volume brings together new empirical research and theoretical innovations from cutting-edge scholarship concentrating on the intersection of immigration and work. Research in this volume investigates how larger structural inequalities in sending and receiving nations, immigrant entry policies, group characteristics, and micro level processes, such as discrimination and access to ethnic networks, shapes labor market outcomes, workplace experiences, and patterns of integration among immigrants and their descendants.
