Program announced for mini-conference on precarious labor

 

The program for the 2016 mini-conference on precarious labor is now available online.  The one-day conference, which is co-sponsored by the OOW Section, will be held Friday, August 19, 2016 in Seattle, Washington (Seattle Central College).

The conference focuses on analyzing the growth of precarious employment and informal labor, its consequences for workers and their families, the challenges it poses to worker organizing and collective mobilization, and how workers and other social actors are responding to precariousness.  The program focuses on the United States and China, but includes a range of global cases and perspectives.

The conference was initiated by the American Sociological Association (ASA)’s Labor and Labor Movements Section, the International Sociological Association (ISA)’s Research Committee on Labor Movements (RC44), and the Chinese Sociological Association’s China Association of Work and Labor (CAWL).
