An accessible and provocative argument for a national "living wage." "The living wage campaign is the most interesting (and under-reported) grassroots enterprise to emerge since the civil rights movement."--Robert Kuttner, editor of The American Prospect . With campaigns for a living wage sweeping the country, Robert Pollin and Stephanie Luce's timely and powerful defense of its practicality and success is now available in an updated paperback edition. Hailed as "the bible of the living wage movement," The Living Wage shows how living-wage proposals are affordable for both cities and employers, and reveals how they can play an important role in reversing the twenty-five-year decline in wages experienced by most working people in America. Written by leading experts, The Living Wage is a realistic and accessible examination of this vital--and growing--movement for economic justice in the United States.
