Dishing It Out : Waitresses and Their Unions in the Twentieth Century Paperback / softback

Part of the Working Class in American History series

Paperback / softback

Description

"Rich in detail, studded with telling anecdotes, Dishing It Out is just as vivid and evocative as its title suggests. . . . This book speaks with clarity and good sense to the major debates in the history of work and gender and will become a landmark in our growing understanding of the relationships between the two." -- Susan Porter Benson, author of Counter Cultures "In this imaginative study of waitresses, work, and unionism, Cobble challenges us all to rethink the conventional wisdom about the relationship between craft unionism and the possibilities for women workers' collective action.

Women's labor history will never be the same." -- Ruth Milkman, author of Gender at Work: The Dynamics of Job Segregation by Sex during World War II
