​Jake Rosenfeld’s research and teaching focus on the political and economic determinants of inequality in the United States and other advanced democracies.

Rosenfeld's book What Unions No Longer Do shows in detail the consequences of labor’s decline: curtailed advocacy for better working conditions, weakened support for immigrants’ economic assimilation, and ineffectiveness in addressing wage stagnation among African-Americans. The book received wide attention in the national press.
