Seminar: "Nonstandard Work Schedules Over the Life Course: A First Look"

Description:
MARYLAND POPULATION RESEARCH CENTER presents a seminar: HARRIET B. PRESSER, Distinguished University Professor, Department of Sociology, University of Maryland About the talk: Large numbers of Americans work nonstandard schedules. Cross-sectional data reveal that one-fifth of all employed Americans work mostly in the evening at night, or on a rotating shift. After reviewing the minimal research that does exist, Professor Presser addresses for the first time the extent to which Americans work nonstandard schedules over the course of their working lives. She does so with data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (1979 cohort from ages 18 to 39), examining gender, race-ethnicity, and educational differences. Further analytic work is planned. {Will appear in FYI on Sep 22, 2011
