Lecture | November 2 | 4-6 p.m. | 2521 Channing Way (Inst. for Res. on Labor & Employment), IRLE Director's Room
Rick Wartzman, Director, KH Moon Center for a Functioning Society
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 centurys 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.
