Publisher's Summary

Growing numbers of Americans are doing work that they care about and enjoy. But they're frustrated by stagnant wages, shrinking health coverage, shaky pension plans, and company polices that make it more difficult for them to do their jobs well. Corporate executives may be becoming less loyal to their employees, but those same employees still want to be loyal to their company. What turns a model employee into a malcontent? Indiscriminate cost cutting and the pursuit of short-term profits prevent the best workers from doing their best work, fueling the workplace conflicts of the 21st century.

Misleading Title

The title is misleading. It should be 'The Rise of Unions in the Pacific Northwest'.

I was expecting research, facts, reports and tools for both workers and companies. Instead, this book seems to be written from the single premise that unions are good, corporations are bad, and the only path to employee happiness is through a union.

While I'm a supporter of collective bargaining, I also realize there is more to employee satisfaction than this either or choice. Unfortunately, the only tool described here is a Union Hammer and everything looks like a Union Nail.
