Topic: Critical Industrial Relations: centering social identity in our understanding of the employment relationship with Tamara Lee
Date: Thursday, April 20th
Time: 2 PM – 3:30 PM PT
Location: Public Affairs 5391 (in-person)
How does our understanding of employment practices and worker responses deepen or shift when we take a critical lens centered in the counternarratives of marginalized workers? Discussing her work on racialized worker control at Amazon’s fulfillment centers and contemporary uprisings for social and economic justice, Professor Lee explores the opportunities for theory and praxis when we challenge traditional colorblind approaches to understand labor law, employer tactics and worker responses to injustice inside and outside of the workplace.
