Revolutionizing Retail: Workers, Political Action, and Social Change (Hardcover)
This book was awarded the Canadian Association for Work and Labour Studies 2015 Book Prize.
"This book is a timely and important contribution to our understanding of work and social change. Kendra Coulter thoughtfully explores the possibility of a revolution in retail that transforms the lives of retail workers, and helps build a more just and equitable society. Revolutionizing Retail is essential reading for anyone interested in labor, gender, sociology, anthropology, or in the need not just for jobs, but for good jobs." - Elaine Bernard, Executive Director, Labor and Worklife Program, Harvard Law School, USA
"Kendra Coulter provides a lucid, accessible, and insightful discussion of strategies for improving retail work, one which, laudably, makes the experiences and voices of often-ignored retail workers a central part of the narrative. This expansive and compelling book offers valuable fodder for everyone concerned about improving standards in this growing sector of the economy, and about the future of work." - Stephanie Ross, Associate Professor and Co-Director, Global Labour Research Centre, York University, Canada
