By Beth Shulman

An astonishing 30 million Americans—one in every four workers—are employed in jobs that pay poverty wages and provide minimal or no benefits. For them, America’s basic promise—that if you work hard, you and your family can live decently—has been broken. In The Betrayal of Work, author Beth Shulman spent several years traveling across the country talking to those who work full-time for less than a living wage; Shulman provides a voice to all low wage workers.
