DIRTY WORK Essential Jobs and the Hidden Toll of Inequality in America

by | Read by Neil Shah

Contemporary Culture • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Author Eyal Press asks listeners to consider his view that grave moral injuries are being inflicted upon workers in a variety of "dirty" industries. Narrator Neil Shah sounds like a seasoned survival show narrator as he brings seriousness, tension, and concern to the author's probing interviews with a panoply of workers. They include mental health professionals in prisons, drone operators carrying out targeted assassinations, and undocumented immigrants manning slaughterhouse "kill floors." Shah's tone amplifies the audiobook's descriptions of the physical and psychological harm caused by these and other such professions. The production ends with an examination of essential workers caught in the crosshairs of COVID-19. Listeners will find themselves pondering the ethics of a society that is perfectly comfortable inflicting harm upon a certain segment of its workers.
