Bob Barnetson is a professor of labour relations at Athabasca University. His research examines the political economy of workplace injury as well as child, migrant and farm labour in Alberta.
As a co-investigator with the On the Move Partnership, Bob examined the migrant worker narratives used by Alberta politicians to justify growing employment-related geographic mobility as well as the degree to which increasing ERGM allows employers to transfer injury costs through time and space.
