We're all familiar with the scenario: a company has trouble keeping up with its competitors and looks for ways to cut costs in a bid to boost its sagging profits. In industry after industry the result is the same - a downward spiral in wages, health care, and retirement benefits. Some have called it the “Wal-martization” of the economy, but does it have to be this way? Do companies really have no other options? To answer these questions and more, Sarah welcomes Eileen Appelbaum, Professor of Management at Rutgers University and co-author of “Low Wage America.”
