Take This Job and Ship It: How Corporate Greed and Brain-Dead Politics Are Selling Out Americaby Byron Dorgan
Synopses & Reviews
Senator Dorgan is sounding the alarm: With our country up to our neck in trade debt--$2 billion a day--as we import energy and export jobs, it is long past the time to tackle the trade crisis head-on.
By outsourcing hundreds of thousands of U.S. jobs, American companies are essentially hollowing out our economic base, and with the current White House beholden to Big Oil and cronies straight out of the Gilded Age, no one is guarding the rights of the American worker. Take This Job and Ship It is not just a dire warning--it also offers many sobering cures before our current policies put American national security even further at risk.
One of the most vocal Democrats in the Senate passionately argues that free trade is not free, and that outsourcing, offshoring, and greedy mega-corporations are destroying Americas economy.
