It is not always easy to translate the very sanctity of labor into terms that have meaning in our times, times in which the marketplace seems to have been elevated above all other holy altars. But A Worker Justice Reader provides exactly such a translation. It is a most welcome contribution to the public conversation. --Rabbi Robert Marx, Founder, Jewish Council on Urban Affairs
With the profound shifts in political and economic power that have occurred in recent years, religious people need to recommit to robust advocacy for the dignity and fair treatment of workers. This book is a valuable resource for religious communities who wish to develop an authentic and effective response to one of the most important ethical issues of our time. --Ingrid Mattson, Hartford Seminary
