Selected Topics in Sociology; The American Working Class
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
The 21st century has brought dramatic changes to the working class in the United States. Today's workers face a very different economy, politics, demography, and culture than the working class of the mid-20th century. This course will review these changes; contrast them with the position of the American middle class; explore gender, racial, and geographic differences within these changes; and look to possible futures ahead.
