Take This Job and Ship It: How Corporate Greed and Brain-Dead Politics Are Selling Out America

Take This Job and Ship It: How Corporate Greed and Brain-Dead Politics Are Selling Out America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author

In 1998, Dorgan was named the chairman of the Democratic Policy Committee, a position held by many before they become Majority Leader. From 1996 to 1998 he served in the Democratic leadership as Assistant Floor Leader. He is a member of four Senate standing committees--Appropriations, Commerce, Energy, and Indian Affairs--as well as of thirteen subcommittees.
