My research takes a social demographic approach towards the understandings of social stratification in the workplace and in the family. My dissertation examines, from the life course perspective, the macrolevel patterns and the microlevel mechanisms by which inequality changes over the life course. The first chapter establishes, both theoretically and empirically, a life course trajectory framework for analyzing the changes of wage inequality across individuals' life course. The second chapter studies the post-marital wage trajectories for men and women over their lives. The third chapter examines ways in which individuals within the same family mitigate uncertainties in their earnings by acting responsively in their labor market activities over their life courses.
