Toxic Work: Women Workers at GTE Lenkurt

Toxic Work: Women Workers at GTE Lenkurt

by Steve Fox

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[A]n exposé of the nature of chemical exposures in electronics, and of the 'archaic, random...set of institutions...that many injured workers must rely on for support, ...impossible to put down."
Women's Review of Books

"A chilling story of what can happen when corporations like GTE put their profit margins ahead of human lives, and how the court system is often the only way victims can get relief."
Pamela Gilbert, Legislative Director, Public Citizen's Congress Watch

"A sensitive and gripping tale...Steve Fox successfully brings together issues of labor organizing, gender, work roles, minorities, and toxic hazards. This is a valuable contribution to the small but growing numbers of case studies of toxic wastes and collective action."
Professor Phil Brown, Department of Sociology, Brown University
