What People are saying about this

Jodie Allen
'A Future of Good Jobs?' could hardly be better timed with respect to current trends in the American economy. While most of these trends--widening wage inequality, underemployment of the less educated, increased global competition, and cutbacks in health insurance and retirement coverage--are far from new, it is only recently that policymakers and mainstream economists have come to acknowledge that they are not necessarily self-correcting. The practical, concrete remedies offered in this book are especially welcome in that they are sensitive to both the realities of the U.S. labor force and to the needs and resources of U.S. employers. (Jodie Allen, Senior Editor, Pew Research Center)
Gary Burtless
[The editors] 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 importantly, they provide a timely set of perscriptions to address those problems. (Gary Burtless, The Brookings Institution)
