By Scott M. Loblaw on October 6, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Freeman offers an eye-opening perspective on the forces that have changed and developed the U.S. Labor Market. He highlights what he perceives to be it's biggest problems and offers explanations as well as recommendations to help the U.S. Labor Market. The final chapters really get past all of the historical forces that have brought it to where it is and offer a view of the future and challenges that must be met. It is a must read for anyone who is a part of the U.S. Labor Market - that means you!
