On coerced labor, and work without employment.

Sociologist Erin Hatton explores the nature of coerced labor in America - as prisons, welfare programs and universities push workers outside the protection of traditional legal employment, employers wield increasing power to exploit and punish subjects with little protection and less bargaining power.

Erin is author of Coerced: Work Under Threat of Punishment from University of California Press.
