Please note: this audio-only talk will be presented on the Vermont Humanities Facebook page. It has also been released as an episode of The Portable Humanist podcast series.

Labor historian Annelise Orleck provides a close look at globalization and its costs, from the perspective of low-wage workers themselves—berry pickers, fast food servers, garment workers, cashiers, hotel housekeepers, home health care aides, and even adjunct professors—who are fighting for respect, safety, and a living wage.
