What constitutes a 'good job' or a 'bad job'? What characteristics of jobs are harmful, and which job conditions protect worker health and wellbeing? In this course, we focus heavily on the nature of job stress, where it comes from, and why some people experience more of it than others. Topics will include socioeconomic disparities in stress exposure, gender and racial discrimination in the workplace, gig work and online platforms, social protection policies, and COVID-19. Cannot earn credit if already taken SOC 697 under the special topic "Work and Well-Being".
