“We Are All Fast Food Workers Now” is a powerful look at neo-liberalism and its damages, a story of resistance and rebellion, a reflection on hope and change as it rises from the bottom up. Worker interviews by award-winning historian Annelise Orleck and original photographs by Liz Cooke tell the story of low-wage workers in this up-close and personal look at globalization and its costs.
