"Kim Bobo's Wage Theft in America is an incisive handbook for organizers, workers, and concerned citizens on how to prevent the flagrant exploitation of America's working people. Offering a sweeping analysis of the crisis and providing concrete solutions, with special attention to what the new presidential administration must do, Wage Theft in America addresses one of the most egregious and unfair practices affecting workers today."--Jacket.
