Erin Hatton

Scholars at Hallwalls: Nannies, Welfare Recipients, and Prisoners: The Struggle for Worker Rights

Erin Hatton is an Assistant Professor of Sociology. She came to UB in 2008 after completing her PhD at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her research falls squarely within the sociology of work, while also extending into the fields of gender, race, labor, political economy, and public policy. Her first book, The Temp Economy: From Kelly Girls to Permatemps in Postwar America (Temple University Press, 2011), brings these themes together in an examination of the temporary help industry and the rise of the new economy. Her new book project, Working But Not Employed, examines the widespread and growing use of "non-employed" workers.
