Todd E. Vachon is a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Labor Studies and Employment Relations in the School of Management and Labor Relations at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Todd’s research agenda is a theoretically and empirically driven effort to understand the structural origins and consequences of inequality and the struggles of ordinary people to achieve greater equality and dignity through education, organizations, and movements. To this end, he has published widely on labor and social movements, social stratification, and the intersection of work and environmental issues in journals such as Socius, Social Science Research, Labor Studies Journal, Sociological Forum, and the Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society. Todd is currently completing a book manuscript about the emerging labor-climate movement within the U.S. labor movement.
