We’ve heard it again and again, but seldom laid out with the clarity Steven Greenhouse brings. The American worker is getting crunched. Corporate profits are up. Productivity is up. CEO pay is way up. But the American worker is getting squeezed.
Greenhouse is labor and workplace reporter for The New York Times. He’s brought home the stories that make the squeeze real — on workloads, job security, pensions, stress, health care. If you’re working, you’ll know these stories.
This hour, On Point: the big squeeze on American workers.
