"This volume provides a wealth of information in a well-organized format. Each chapter focuses on a specific topic, which includes basic labor and employment law, immigrant workers, outsourcing/privatization, and specific worker groups (e.g., single mothers, in-home health care and housekeeping, and those with a criminal record). All articles provide both footnotes and extensive bibliographies that would prove very helpful to those studying these issues, and each serves well independently as a primer on its respective topic."—Michael Childers, Labor Studies Journal, March 2010
