Steven Greenhouse was a reporter for The New York Times from 1983 to 2014, where he covered labor and the workplace for nineteen years. His forthcoming book, Beaten Down, Worked Up (Knopf, 2019), looks at key historic episodes that built the nation’s labor unions and at the future of the labor movement and workers in America. The book shows how labor unions helped create the world's largest, richest middle class and helped make America a fairer, more democratic nation. Beaten Down, Worked Up also examines new forms of worker power, such as the Fight for $15, the #RedforEd teachers' strikes, and some innovative efforts to lift farmworkers as well as Uber drivers and other gig workers. Greenhouse has been honored with the Society of Professional Journalists Deadline Club award, a New York Press Club award, a Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Reporting, and the Hillman Prize for Book Journalism for his last book, The Big Squeeze: Tough Times for the American Worker (Knopf, 2008).Read more Read less
