In "Paying to Lose Our Jobs", Patricia Horn shows that U.S. women, especially women of color, are the big losers in the low-wage bidding game. Each year from 1979 to 1992 an average of 41,000 apparel workers in the United States lost their jobs. Three-quarters of U.S. apparel workers are women, over a third of whom are minorities. This combination makes them the U.S.'s most vulnerable workers.
Yet for all the bad news, Corporations Are Gonna Get Your Mama brings you the good news as well: there are hundreds of groups struggling to create more democratic control of the capitol and capital.
