Bio: Dr. Hatton's research focuses on work and political economy, while also extending into the fields of social inequality, labor, law, and social policy. Her first book, The Temp Economy: From Kelly Girls to Permatemps in Postwar America (Temple University Press, 2011), examines the temporary help industry and the rise of the new economy. Dr. Hatton's current book project examines workers who labor without the full protection of employment and labor laws.
