About this product
- DescriptionFollowing in the footsteps of Barbara Ehrenreich's 2001 bestseller Nickel and Dimed, The Betrayal of Work provides the fullest portrait of America's working poor. Beth Schulman spent several years travelling across the country, talking to those on low wages. She dispels a number of myths along the way: that lower unemployment has meant better living conditions for the poor; that making bad jobs into good jobs requires insurmountably difficult reforms; that low-wage work is always low-skilled. The Betrayal of Work includes recommendations on how to build on current public policy in this area. As the influential Harvard Business School newsletter put it, Shulman specifically outlines how structural changes in the ecomy may be achieved, thus expanding opportunities for all Americans. This edition includes a new afterword that intervenes in the post-election debate by arguing that law-wage work is an urgent moral issue of our time.
