Take This Job and Ship It: How Corporate Greed and Brain-Dead Politics Are Selling Out America

Overview

Senator Dorgan is sounding the alarm: With our country up to our neck in trade debt--$2 billion a day--as we import energy and export jobs, it is long past the time to tackle the trade crisis head-on. By outsourcing hundreds of thousands of U.S. jobs, American companies are essentially hollowing out our economic base, and with the current White House beholden to Big Oil and cronies straight out of the Gilded Age, no one is guarding the rights of the American worker. Take This Job and Ship It is not just a dire warning--it also offers many sobering cures before our current policies put American national security even further at risk.

Reviews

Senator Byron Dorgan is one of the few elected officials of either party who have consistently and unwaveringly defended the interests of American working men and women and their families. His commitment to our country and the truth is inspiring. His book is a trenchant and timely examination of America's so-called free trade policies and the exorbitant cost to our middle class and our nation. <br>--Lou Dobbs, Lou Dobbs Tonight, CNN I watched Senator Dorgan take on the powerful interests in the U.S. Senate, and this book shows that he is still at it. Our country's trade policies are a scandal, and Dorgan has the guts to expose it and name names. He also tells us how to put our country back on track. This is an important book that might finally call our country to action to protect good jobs and our way of life. <br>--Ernest F. Fritz Hollings, Chairman, Senate Commerce Committee, 2001-2004 Senator Dorgan reminds us that politics can still produce prophets who see the world for what it is and for what it can be. Conventional wisdom has failed--a flat world is not a healthy world. Read this book and sign up to fight for an America that works for all Americans. <br>--Bill Moyers, Bill Moyers Journal (PBS), author, and former White House press secretary <br> If you think that no one in Washington gives a damn about about corporate greed and the decimation of America's middle class, you haven't met Senator Byron Dorgan. In Take This Job and Ship It, this modern-day Prairie Populist pops the greedheads right in their snouts, using both facts and a stinging sense of humor. Byron's book is both a rallying cry and a blueprint for action. If you believe America is headed in the wrongdirection and you want to do something about it, read this book, then help us elect more Byron Dorgans. <br>--Jim Hightower, author of Thieves in High Places and former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture<br>
