Summary

Praise for Steven Greenhouse'sThe Big Squeeze ''Steven Greenhouse's brilliant and vividly reported exposé shows how employers have been squeezing the life out of American workers, through means both legal and illegal.

Greenhouse exhibits outrage and moral indignation and an idealism one doesn't necessarily expect from a hard-bittenNew York Timesreporter.'' -The Washington Monthly ''New York Timeslabor correspondent Greenhouse drops a bombshell . . . Greenhouse's clear and level prose is investigative journalism at its finest.'' -Rocky Mountain News ''Greenhouse'sThe Big Squeezeis a fresh, probing look at the critical issues facing both blue- and white-collar American workers . . .The Big Squeezewill be an eye-opener for many. Don't miss it.'' -Providence Journal-Bulletin ''Important and infuriating.'' -Chicago Tribune ''The power of Greenhouse’
