summary
"Timothy Bartik and Susan Houseman have assembled a first-rate team of economists to assess the problems of struggling workers. They offer cogent analyses of America's workplace problems. More important, they provide a timely set of prescriptions to address those problems. Many writers wring their hands at the challenges facing workers who are at the bottom of the pay ladder. The authors of this volume focus on the more difficult task of crafting humane but tough-minded solutions to the problem of shrinking wages." –Gary Burtless, The Brookings Institution
