E-BOOK EXCERPT

Advances in technology are creating the next economy and enabling us to make things/do things/connect with others in smarter, cheaper, faster, more effective ways. But the price of this progress has been a decoupling of the engine of prosperity from jobs that have been the means by which people have ascended to (and stayed in) the middle class. Andy Stern, the former president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) spent four years traveling the country and asking economists, futurists, labor leaders, CEOs, investment bankers, entrepreneurs, and political leaders to help picture the U.S. economy 25 to 30 years from now. He vividly reports on people who are analyzing and creating this new economy--such as investment banker Steve Berkenfeld; David Cote, the CEO of Honeywell International; Andy Grove of Intel; Carl Camden, the CEO of Kelly Services; and Geoffrey Canada of the Harlem Childrenโ€™s Zone. Through these stories, we come to a stark and deeper understanding of the toll technological progress will continue to take on jobs and income and its inevitable effect on tens of millions of people. But there is hope for our economy and future. The foundation of economic prosperity for all Americans, Stern believes, is a universal basic income. The idea of a universal basic income for all Americans is controversial but American attitudes are shifting. Stern has been a game changer throughout his career, and his next goal is to create a movement that will force the political establishment to take action against something that many on both the right and the left believe is inevitable. Sternโ€™s plan is bold, idealistic, and challenging--and its time has come.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Working conditions impact our health, the amount of time we can spend with family, our options during momentous life events, and whether we keep or lose a job when the unexpected occurs. The global community has accepted the argument that any country that guarantees decent working conditions will suffer higher unemployment and be less competitive. This book shatters this view by presenting the first ever global analysis of the relationship between labor conditions, national competitiveness, and unemployment rates in 90 countries.

"Raise a cheer for Sklar, Mykyta and Wefald! Raise the Floor sets out the arguments for a higher minimum wage and other policy changes so clearly and persuasively that only the most cold-hearted could ignore them. This is a commanding work and powerful tool for the living wage movement that is gaining ground everywhere."รข__Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed"Some books tell the story of the working poor. Some give the numbers. Others stress policy solutions. This book does it all, with passion and precision. It's a tremendously valuable resource."รข__Jared Bernstein, Economic Policy InstituteMost Americans believe a job should keep you out of poverty, not keep you in it. Raise The Floor: Wages and Policies That Work for All of Us show us how we can translate that belief into reality by raising the minimum wage. Authors Holly Sklar, Laryssa Mykyta and Susan Wefald deftly blend the latest data and real-life stories to show what it takes to make ends meet in today's America.In addition to telling workers' stories, presenting original data, and proposing comprehensive policies, Raise The Floor spotlights businesses, large and small, that demonstrate how good wages are good business - in good economic times and bad.
