Summary

Beth Shulman spent several years traveling across the country talking to those living on low wages. In The Betrayal of Work, she provides the fullest portrait of America's working poor, dispelling a number of myths along the way; that most low-wage workers are teenagers, immigrants, or high-school dropouts; that being in low-wage employment is a stepping stone to a better position; that making bad jobs into good jobs requires insurmountably difficult reforms; that low-wage work is always low-skilled. With a thorough analysis of how we arrived at this point, Shulman offers a far-reaching argument about what we must do to restore fairness to the American economic order.
