Description: "This book is a tretise on the changing demographics of the American workforce and how corporations should work to alter job patterns on order to adapt to evolving employment trends. The authors first cite statistics to show the lack of growth in pay, benefits, and positions for the lowest-skilled workers. Despite the technological and economic growth since World War II, the majority of manufacturing jobs remain low paying and provide few prospects for future growth. According to these workers will improve without changes in these jobs. Among the strategies the authors advise: raising the minimum wage and expanding training programs across different companies". -- Publishers Weekly

"New Rules for a New Economy is long overdue.(The)authors...deliver a keenly perceptive study, broad in scope but also generous in case study-based detail. Many of the trends they discern are sweeping manufacturing as well as services, rendering the book's insights and recommendations widely applicable. In fact, to understand work in the United States today, this is the single most important book to read". -- Dollars and Sense

"A stimulating book". -- Financial Times of London

"A concise survey of the labor market problems and innovative approaches to deal with them". -- Choice
