The future of health care looms large in American politics this election season. In their new book, Caring for America, acclaimed scholars Eileen Boris and Jennifer Klein examine this issue with acute clarity by focusing on the neglected history of workers who provide that care. They argue that care is a basic right for all and that care workers deserve a living wage. Hear them discuss their new book Caring for America with a leading labor lawyer and a scholar of women’s labor.
