LABR 141C - (BH) Labor Economics

Semester Hours: 3
Fall, Spring
The centrality of work in most people’s lives has made labor issues like job growth, unemployment, skills training, pay and benefits, occupational safety, work force diversity and inequality, immigration, trade unions, labor-management relations, and government employment and labor market programs subjects of great importance and debate around the world.  This course introduces students to the main theoretical perspectives and empirical tools used by economists to explain and analyze the multifaceted interactions of workers, employers, labor unions, regulatory agencies, and other institutions. Through both historical and current cross-country studies, the course develops a comparative global framework for analyzing earnings and employment problems and policies.
