Despite high employment, low wages and job insecurity leave many families at or below the poverty line. The career instability previously experienced mostly by blue-collar workers has spread to middle managers and high-level executives caught in the rapid movement of capital and technologies. In light of these facts and the anxiety about employment prevalent in our society, Aronowitz argues for a new social contract between employers and workers.

The Nation has described Stanley Aronowitz as "a larger-than-life" figure who has vigorously defended American labor through his public speeches, organizing, and academic writings. He lives in Manhattan, where he is distinguished professor of sociology and cultural studies at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
The Last Good Job in America provides a wake up call for those who believe that class is either an outdated category or who want to define it through the narrow prism of rigid orthodoxies. Stanley Aronowitz both rescues class from these pitfalls and offers one of the most expansive, insightful, and complex renderings of its significance for rethinking the meaning of a revitalized democracy. Not only does Aronowitz engage the history of class as a conceptual and political category, he also constructs a brilliant analysis of how class is lived through a wide range of social relations and institutions. This is a profoundly important book that offers a new language and interdisciplinary approach to appropriating class as part of a wider effort to challenge the so called irreversible logic of global capitalism while reclaiming the promise of democracy as a site of struggle and possibility.--Henry A. Giroux, author of "The Mouse that Roared: Disney and the End of Innocence"
