  • This class will examine contemporary theories pertaining to labor market inequality and wealth stratification. What organizational practices shape unequal employment outcomes, and how can they be addressed? What factors are contributing to the widening wealth stratification and income inequality in the United States and abroad? How are establishments, technology, and executive compensation shaping labor market inequality today? These questions, and others, will be addressed by examining processes affecting: (1) organizations, (2) individuals and society, and (3) nations. Theoretical concepts will be explored thorough practical examples. In addition to discussing key factors shaping inequality and stratification outcomes, solutions to address these issues will be examined through organizational and policy initiatives.
