Work’s New Age is the prophetic new book which shows what is happening with American jobs. It describes what the jobs crisis really is, and why it is permanent and will not end with better economic times. The book shares how the work situation has affected and will affect national social patterns, and assesses a wide range of possible solutions. It concludes by naming what Americans must to do to shift successfully to the new jobs reality. Since November, author James B. Huntington has spoken on Work’s New Age on over 130 radio stations nationwide. The book has also been featured in newspapers, magazines, and other speaking events.
