Steven Greenhouse - Beaten Down, Worked Up: The Past, Present, and Future of American Labor

Upcoming Event
Thursday, August 8, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In his new book, Greenhouse, an award-winning journalist who spent nearly twenty years covering labor and the workplace for The New York Times, traces today’s blight of wage stagnation, income inequality, gender-pay gaps, and a host of other social and political problems directly to the long decline of worker power. His eloquent defense of worker groups looks back to landmark achievements by labor unions as well as documenting the activities of the working class today; from hotel housekeepers to G.M. laborers to Uber drivers, Greenhouse shows the concrete ways workers are organizing and reclaiming their collective power.
