This study examines how segmentation within the working class affects workers' demand for unionization. Beyond issues of social stratification, it also considers the effects of gender , race, and age inequality on unionization demand. It fills a gap left by present theories about the working class, such as the homogenization and segmentation theories.

The study also identifies important roles played by labor unions when mobilizing low status workers to unionize. When low status workers consider unionization, a union's legitimacy and efficacy rank as high priorities.(Ph.D. dissertation, Vanderbilt University, 1993; revised with new preface and index)
