Once, big companies took responsibility for their workers’ wellbeing, with high pay and reliable benefits. But as precarious work expands and pensions dwindle, many workers no longer feel that their employers are looking out for them. Author Rick Wartzman follows four corporate giants – General Electric, General Motors, Kodak, and Coca-Cola – through the twentieth century’s booms and busts, examining the changing relationships between employers and employees.

The discussion will be moderated by James Lincoln and David Levine, both from the the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley, and will be followed by a reception.
