The Poverty of Work
Selling Servant, Slave and Temporary Labor on the Free Market
This study takes readers inside the world of temping to discover a type of work dreadfully insecure yet growing rapidly.
This chilling look inside the history of employment agencies in the U.S. argues that they should have been abolished with slavery, or at the very least, put under tight government control. Today, left largely unregulated, employment agencies generate astonishing revenue by selling flexible, on-demand temporary workers. In the process millions are trapped in a cycle of unemployment, despair, and poverty.
