Cornell ILR Professor Talk – “The Gig Economy and the American Dream” with Louis Hyman

Cornell ILR Professor Talk – “The Gig Economy and the American Dream” with Louis Hyman

Wednesday, June 28 at 7 pm

Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site

641 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo NY

Free and Open to the Public – No registration required

Louis Hyman is an assistant professor in the Labor Relations, Law, and History department at the ILR school of Cornell University where he also directs the Institute for Workplace Studies. An economic historian, his research focuses on the history of American capitalism, particularly the intersection of the government and the market in everyday economic practice.

Hyman’s current focus is the history of temp labor and the gig economy in the United States. Building on this, Professor Hyman will discuss how the gig economy came to be such an outsized part of the work force, and how it has created both insecurity and opportunity. The discussion will also explore how it could yet be enhanced, with the right government investment, to encourage innovation and a better work-life balance for many Americans.
