"You can work a 8-hour shift without spirit, but it ain't half worth it, ya know?" --from "Pauline Learns to Sew"
In Piece Work, you'll meet Velma, the shrink wrapper, Pauline in sewing, Charlie, the first-shift foreman, Tonisha in knitting, and many more. There are good times--when work is steady and pay is high--and there are bad--when machines are unbolted and shipped to factories in other countries, and, one by one, the workers' jobs are on the line. Piece Work is about what mattered and continues to matter in the working world--the everyday people who keep the place running.
