Description

With campaigns for a living wage sweeping the country, here is an accessible and provocative argument for a national "living wage." Hailed as "the bible of the living wage movement," The Living Wage shows how living-wage proposals are affordable for both cities and employers, and reveals how they can play an important role in reversing the twenty-five-year decline in wages experienced by most working people in America. Written by leading experts, The Living Wage is a realistic and accessible examination of this vital--and growing--movement for economic justice in the United States.
