Ann’s chapter “Serving Up Service: Fast-Food and Office Women Workers Doing It With A Smile” looks at how the restructuring and downsizing of the labour source demands “leaner and meaner” employees who are influenced by those changes and can respond to them.

“This book is a triumph! It should be required reading in all Women’s Studies classes!”  — Patricia Allen, University of California
