Written by Lew Maltby, chair of ADA's Workers' Rights Commitee, CAN THEY DO THAT?: Retaking Our Fundamental Rights in the Workplace is a shocking exposé of the outrageous ways that companies invade employees' privacy and restrict their freedom. Order your copy today.
Author Barbara Ehrenreich: "[Lew Maltby's] new book brilliantly lays out the bitter truth: that the American workplace is a dictatorship where workers have few, if any, rights. Fortunately, it also contains some excellent ideas on how to fight for human rights at work."
ADA President Richard Parker said: "This is a cogent and compelling look at the issues involved as well as a guide to the principles and practices that would make America more authentically and richly democratic. It should be read and debated by legislators, journalists, academics, and the broad public alike."
