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. My blood boiled when I read The Big Squeeze. Any presidential candidate-or voter-who overlooks this book will be clueless about what's really going on in America.'' -Barbara Ehrenreich ''In this shocking and important book, Steven Greenhouse explains-and tells t
he stories-of how U.S. workers are paying the price for the lower labor standards and wages that are the result of poorly-managed globalization.'' -Joseph E. Stiglitz ''Steve Greenhouse has written the essential economic book for 2008. Long before most analysts noticed the downturn, Greenhouse was reporting how troubled our economy looked from the bottom-up. A hugely talented reporter with a passion for justice, a shrewd student of the new economy and a brilliant guide to the contemporary labor movement, Greenhouse writes with clarity, energy and grace.'' -E. J. Dionne Jr. ''Riveting . . . a sobering examination of a growing American crisis, and . . . nothing short of brilliant.'' -Tucson Citizen ''An excellent book . . . 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’
