Book Talk: Annelise Orleck Presents “We Are All Fast-Food Workers Now”
March 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Annelise Orleck – Dartmouth professor and Brooklyn-native – will present her latest work, “We Are All Fast Food Workers Now”: The Global Uprising against Poverty Wages.
Tracing a new global labor movement sparked and sustained by low-wage workers,“We Are All Fast-Food Workers Now” is an urgent, illuminating look at globalization as seen through the eyes of workers-activists: small farmers, fast-food servers, retail workers, hotel housekeepers, home-healthcare aides, airport workers, and adjunct professors who are fighting for respect, safety, and a living wage. The presentation will include personal experiences, photographs, and segments of interviews from labor rights advocates from around the world.
Presentation will be followed by Q&A sessions and book-signing.
