Illegal People: How Globalization Creates Migration and Criminalizes Immigrants – Books about Work

Bacon, David
Beacon 2008 Dewey Dec. 331.6

For two decades veteran photojournalist David Bacon has documented the connections between labor, migration, and the global economy. In Illegal People Bacon explores the human side of globalization, exposing the many ways it uproots people in Latin America and Asia, driving them to migrate. At the same time, U.S. immigration policy makes the labor of those displaced people a crime in the United States. Illegal People explains why our national policy produces even more displacement, more migration, more immigration raids, and a more divided, polarized society.
Through interviews and on-the-spot reporting from both impoverished communities abroad and American immigrant workplaces and neighborhoods, Bacon shows how the United States’ trade and economic policy abroad, in seeking to create a favorable investment climate for large corporations, creates conditions to displace communities and set migration into motion. Trade policy and immigration are intimately linked, Bacon argues, and are, in fact, elements of a single economic system. Books about work.

From the Folks who Brought you the Weekend: A Short, Illustrated History of Labor in the United States – Labor Movement Books

Murolo, Priscilla and Chitty, A. B.
Norton 2001 Dewey Dec. 331

Hailed in a starred Publishers Weekly review as a work of “impressive even-handedness and analytic acuity . . . that gracefully handles a broad range of subject matter,” From the Folks Who Brought You the Weekend is the first comprehensive look at American history through the prism of working people. From indentured servants and slaves in the seventeenth-century Chesapeake to high-tech workers in contemporary Silicon Valley, the book “[puts] a human face on the people, places, events, and social conditions that have shaped the evolution of organized labor” (Library Journal).
From the Folks Who Brought You the Weekend also “thoroughly includes the contributions of women, Native Americans, African Americans, immigrants, and minorities, and considers events often ignored in other histories,” writes Booklist, which adds that “thirty pages of stirring drawings by ‘comic journalist’ Joe Sacco add an unusual dimension to the book.” Labor movement books.

Working in America: An Eyewitness History – Labor Movement Books

Reef, Catherine
Facts on File 2000 Dewey Dec. 305

Eyewitness History is an interdisciplinary and multicultural series that reveals how significant events were seen and interpreted by people from all levels of society. Excerpts from primary sources — memoirs, diaries, letters, newspapers, speeches, advertisements, and more — provide a wide range of viewpoints and enhance a compelling narrative, prompting students to develop the critical-thinking skills that allow them to construct their own opinions about the people and their times.

Children for Hire: The Perils of Child Labor in the United States – Books about Child Labor

Levine, Marvin J.
Praeger 2003 Dewey Dec. 331.3

Despite popular belief, the problem of illegal child labor has not been remedied. The practice persists in the United States and even appears to be increasing. Levine, an acknowledged expert in the field, reveals the nature and magnitude of this old problem in today’s economy. Levine explains that since 1981, there has been a relaxation in enforcement of federal child labor law provisions. He presents the complicated elements and troubling implications of a problem that has come to be ignored or overlooked in American society, focusing especially on matters of occupational health and safety. This book is important reading for the general public, as well as for scholars and policymakers involved with children’s and labor issues in the United States.
The United States has more of its children in the workforce than any other developed country. They are found in textile, jewelry, and machine shops in New York and New Jersey, in Southeast supermarkets operating meat-cutting machines and paper-box bailers, in Washington state selling candy door-to-door, and in farming operations throughout the country.
