Camden’s first introduction to the DU Just Wages project was in Dr. Galemba’s Qualitative Research Methods class in 2014. Since Camden had a lifelong interest in topics around labor migration, he decided to expand on the Just Wages project for his M.A. Thesis, A Fair Day’s Wages: Liberty, Legality, and Liability Among Denver’s Day Laborers.
Camden also worked for the DU Just Wages project as an interpreter and research assistant throughout the 2014-2015 academic year, and helped to coordinate some of the early data collection efforts. The project helped deepen his interest in topics around migration and my passion for research. He has since worked with migrant populations in various contexts, and continues to pursue research opportunities related to wage theft and different aspects of precarious forms of labor.
