Social Class and Workplace Harassment during the Transition to Adulthood
McLaughlin, Heather; Uggen, Christopher; Blackstone, Amy
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n119 p85-98 Spr 2008
Young disadvantaged workers are especially vulnerable to harassment due to their age and social class position. As young people enter the workforce, their experiences of, and reactions to, harassment may vary dramatically from those of older adult workers. Three case studies introduce theory and research on the relationship between social class and harassment of young workers. We suggest two mechanisms through which class may structure harassment experiences: (1) extremely vulnerable youth are directly targeted based on their social class origins, and (2) the type and condition of youth employment, which is structured by class background, indirectly affect experiences of harassment.
