Product Overview

Growing numbers of Americans are doing work that they care about and enjoy. But they're frustrated by stagnant wages, shrinking health coverage, shaky pension plans, and company policies that make it more difficult for them to do their jobs well. Corporate executives may be becoming less loyal to their employees, but those same employees still want to be loyal to their company.

Editors Note A study of the growing dissatisfaction among American workers looks at the various factors that are causing the problem, arguing that indiscriminate cost-cutting and the pursuit of short-term profits, along with a lack of respect and workers having no say in the future of a business, are preventing workers from doing their best and fueling workplace conflicts. Simultaneous.
Annotation This examination into the plight of the American worker presents case studies of men and women whose pride in the work they do is undermined by the conditions under which they do it. David Kusnet offers profiles of four workers from famous and successful American companies--Microsoft, Kaiser Aluminum, and others. He finds widespread dissatisfaction, unhappiness with pay and benefits, and a general feeling of being squeezed by decisions made at the corporate level. Kusnet argues that these conditions and their effects are widespread throughout the American workforce at both the blue- and white-collar levels.
