Eyal Press presents Dirty Work: Essential Jobs and the Hidden Toll of Inequality in America
In conversation with E. Tammy Kim
Award-winning journalist Eyal Press presents his groundbreaking, urgent new book, Dirty Work, a report from the front lines of "dirty work"—the work that society considers essential but morally compromised. As Press shows, we are increasingly shielded and distanced from an array of morally questionable activities that other, less privileged people perform in our name. Illuminating the moving, sometimes harrowing stories of the people doing society’s dirty work, and incisively examining the structures of power and complicity that shape their lives, Press reveals fundamental truths about the moral dimensions of work and the hidden costs of inequality in America. Dirty Work offers a paradigm-shifting view of the moral landscape of contemporary America through the stories of people who perform society’s most ethically troubling jobs. Press is joined in conversation by E. Tammy Kim, a contributing opinion writer at The New York Times and a co-host of the Time to Say Goodbye podcast.
