I teach labor and employment relations at Colorado State University. After earning my Ph.D. and J.D. degrees at the University of Colorado, I taught at Pennsylvania State University where I was a tenured associate professor in the Labor Studies Department until returning to Colorado. In 2007, I was awarded a Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Labor Law at the University of Tuscia in Viterbo, Italy. My fields of interest include labor history, workplace collective action, and economic justice. My most recent book is a study of American labor law and how it shaped union formation, published by Praeger in 2015 ("The End of American Labor Unions: The Right-to-Work Movement and the Erosion of Collective Bargaining").
