Though it barely registers in public political discussions, labor exploitation is a substantial and growing problem worldwide. This innovative book looks at the issue through the lens of social harm, analyzing the effects of labor exploitation in different contexts, critiquing existing approaches to the study of workplace exploitation, abuse, and forced labor, and showing the potential for using a social harm–focused approach to attempt to effect political and social change in this area. Mapping out a new subdiscipline, Sam Scott aims to shift the power from employers to workers and reduce labor exploitation and work-based harm across the globe.
