Sep 24: "Tough Times for the American Worker" at CMU

September 24:  "The Big Squeeze: Tough Times for the American Worker."  New York Times labor reporter Steven Greenhouse will discuss his new book which details how life has grown tougher for America’s workers, young and old, middle-class and low-wage, white collar and blue collar, male and female, and what this painful trend will mean in this fall’s elections.  He also examines how much of the American workforce is working more but earning less. Wages have stagnated, health and pension benefits have grown stingier, and job security has shriveled.   (4:30pm in Gregg Hall (Porter Hall 100))
