ECO 241 - Employment Policy Analysis


Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
Employment behavior, outcomes, institutions, and policies are the focus of this research course. The goals of the course are to build a conceptual foundation in economic and labor studies approaches to employment analysis and to develop the research skills needed to critically evaluate employment policy issues. The course explores a variety of interesting and controversial topics, including: changes in career opportunities and obstacles; unemployment; privatization of public sector jobs; pay and fringe benefit differentials; education and training effects; racial, ethnic, and gender discrimination; occupational health and safety; immigration’s job market impacts; international job shifts and global labor policies; and labor union organizing and relationships with employers and government.
