The Betrayal of Work: How Low-Wage Jobs Fail 30 Million Americans

The Betrayal of Work: How Low-Wage Jobs Fail 30 Million Americans
by Beth Shulman

Title available in paperback: yes
Pages: 272

Description of Book: "There is so much talk about “creating jobs” at the moment.  This book is a good reminder that for tens of millions of Americans, the problem is not that they don’t have a job but rather that the job  they have won’t pay the bills, offers few benefits, and little room to advance.  Clearly an issue that many in Michiana, and many IUSB students, can relate to." 

--Title nominated by Scott Sernau, Professor, Sociology and Anthropology
