Naomi R. Gerstel

University of Massachusetts

Research Initiative:

Gerstel and Dan Clawson will write a book examining how workplace time—scheduled hours, flex time, overtime, and vacation—is controlled and allocated. This working group will utilize data on the hours and schedules of low-wage nursing assistants, higher-wage emergency medical technicians and nurses, and high-income doctors. They will analyze how work time is regulated from the above by the state, firms, and management; negotiated or resisted by workers; and impacted by forces outside the workplace, such as family obligations and labor markets.
