Good Journalism

Against all odds, good journalism sometimes occurs in the United States. Be sure to read "Working Life (High and Low)" by Stephen Greenhouse in the New York Times. It's about the ever-worse working conditions for many people in America.

The article is adapted from Greenhouse's book The Big Squeeze. In addition to the New York Times article, you can also read the first chapter here, and find out more at Greenhouse's website.
