A Fireside Chat with Jake Rosenfeld

In pay, objective pay is more relative than your HR Director thinks

Professor Jake Rosenfeld's research and teaching focus on the political and economic determinants of inequality in the United States and other advanced democracies.

He is Professor of Sociology at Washington University in St. Louis.
