Jeffrey Rothstein

Jeffrey Rothstein (Associate Professor): Professor Rothstein received his PhD in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2005. He studies the impact that processes of globalization have on workers and labor relations in mature capitalist economies and industrializing regions as well. Working at the intersection of sociology of work, economic change & development, economic sociology, and labor studies, his current research compares the changing social relations of production at General Motors auto plants in the U.S. and Mexico as the automaker seeks to reorganize work to improve efficiency. Professor Rothstein’s publications appear in Social Forces, Research in the Sociology of Work, Competition & Change, and the New Labor Forum.
