Overview
In the 1990s, before the bubble of the "miracle economy" burst, corporate America grew fat on the miseries of the American worker. Media attention has focused on dot-com disasters, massive layoffs, and explosions of corporate violence. But for those millions of Americans who have neither been laid off nor "gone postal," life at the office has become a nightmare: seven-day-a-week workloads; reduced salaries, pensions, and benefits; virtual enslavement to technology; and a pervasive fear about job security. With facts, figures, and telling case histories, the author chronicles this catastrophic sea change in industry after industry. Her book is essential reading for anyone concerned with the future of the American economy...or worried about his or her own job.
