Working Group on Domestic Subcontracting
11/01/2014 - 10/31/2015
Although it is widely believed that various types of domestic contracting out have greatly expanded and that these new staffing patterns have important implications for compensation and other features of job quality, the phenomenon is poorly measured and understood. The Russell Sage Foundation (RSF) provided seed money to a working group, of which staff person Susan Houseman is a member, to develop a project area in which RSF, possibly in collaboration with other foundations, would fund research. Products of the working group on domestic subcontracting include a white paper and an RFP.
