This chapter demonstrates that opportunity pluralism can help us see new dimensions of and identify new proposals to ameliorate three especially difficult contemporary egalitarian policy problems. Sections of the chapter cover (a) class and access to education, (b) workplace flexibility and work/family conflict, and (c) antidiscrimination law, particularly employment discrimination law. In all of these areas, it is possible to build a more open and porous opportunity structure in part by ameliorating bottlenecks.

Keywords:   class, access to education, workplace flexibility, work/family, work/family conflict, antidiscrimination law, employment discrimination, bottlenecks
