“"Work in America is becoming less secure, income inequalities are widening, and a growing proportion of employees have lost their institutional voice. In this volume, some of the most insightful scholars of the American workplace provide a timely analysis of why this is happening, along with a thoughtful assessment of what can be done to reverse these troubling trends."--Robert B. Reich, University Professor, Brandeis University, and Hexter Professor of Social and Economic Policy, Heller Graduate School”
“"Few books both analyze an issue and suggest solutions as succinctly and persuasively as this one. The issue is the serious mismatch between old institutions and regulations and the new realities of a transformed American labor market. The broad menu of suggested solutions focuses on making the institutional and regulatory framework work better for everyone, both workers and their families and the businesses that use their services."--Marina v. N. Whitman, Professor of Business Administration and Public Policy, University of Michigan, and Independent Director of Alcoa, J. P. Morgan Chase, Procter and Gamble, and Unocal”
