Bio:  Erin’s research falls squarely within the sociology of work, while also extending into the fields of gender, race, labor, political economy, and public policy.  Her recent book, The Temp Economy: From Kelly Girls to Permatemps in Postwar America (Temple University Press) brings these themes together in an examination of the temporary help industry and the rise of the new economy. Her current projects examine the recent return of the strikebreaker industry and the political, legal, and cultural makings of second-class work and workers.
