Narrator Tanya Eby's tone perfectly fits this cogent reporting on how employers large and small fail working-class people in the U.S. The startling inequities she shares--brutal working conditions and systematic corporate and government suppression of wages--are egregious enough to justify a hectoring tone. But the equanimity in her voice better allows this information to help create public awareness about the feudal conditions in much of the retail, service, construction, and healthcare sectors; the hidden costs of low wages to families; and the government agencies called upon to help them survive. Many in the working class are people of color, and their awakening to their demographic power will surely move our culture toward more equitable pay and working conditions.
