- Eye Opening
Academician Ellen Ruppel Shell combines the popular Hillbilly Elegy, Janesville and AI-automation genres into a bold, original and controversial take on the United States’ labor market and its political environment. She demolishes conventional wisdom regarding worker skill shortages, the value of a STEM college education and the pursuit of passion at work. Shell believes most American toil in a vicious cycle of eroding real wages, diminished security and demeaning work that they or their children cannot escape. Workers, leaders, business owners, educators and students will find a lot to discuss in Shell’s arguments
