Question of the Day 5:
Reich on Wealth and Poverty in the Global Economy
Name ____________________________
Date _________________
Reviewer _________________________
Reich makes several scathing claims about the changes in the job market in our society
over the last 20 years in an article that seems to be an indictment of the U.S. Government
and corporate America. He classifies the sectors of employment most affected by the
global changes as “boats,” which are: the routine producers (boat 1), in-person servers
(boat 2), and the symbolic-analyst (boat 3). Explain the type of work represented by each
sector (boat), what employment conditions are like (labor, earnings, or other), and what
effect the global economy is having on people working in each sector.
