Summary
"Work Scared draws on nearly twenty-five thousand interviews with employed and unemployed Americans conducted from 1998 to 2012. These voices of American workers tell a compelling story about wrenching structural changes and recessions during one of the most volatile periods in U.S. economic history. This book represents one of the most comprehensive social science research portraits of the views of American workers about their jobs, the workplace, and government's role in the labor market. Working Sacred will help citizens, policy makers, educators, businesses, unions, and community leaders betters understand what is happening to the U.S. workforce. It also describes the essential national priorities and policies that will assist frustrated, angry, and scared American workers and the reforms that will help restore the American dream of secure employment and intergenerational progress."--Jacket
