Overview
Why, in the world's most affluent nation, are so many corporations squeezing their employees dry? In this fresh, carefully researched book,New York Timesreporter Steven Greenhouse explores the economic, political, and social trends that are transforming America's workplaces, including the decline of the social contract that created the world's largest middle class and guaranteed job security and good pensions. We meet all kinds of workerswhite-collar and blue-collar, high-tech and low-tech, middle-class and low-incomeas we see shocking examples of injustice, including employees who are locked in during a hurricane or fired after suffering debilitating, on-the-job injuries. With pragmatic recommendations on what government, business and labor should do toalleviate the economic crunch,The Big Squeezeis a balanced, consistently revealing look at a major American crisis.
