Wheel of Fortune

Work and Life in the Age of Falling Expectations

By Jamie Swift  

Wheel of Fortune
  • Paperback / softback

Jamie Swift combines sharp-eyed journalism that brings out the nuances of daily life with a penetrating analysis of jobless recovery. He describes the emerging world of work through the eyes and experiences of people in Kingston and Windsor——two Ontario cities with roots in the pre-industrial past, places poised for the post-industrial information age.

The best account we have of the raw, stark reality of working and non-working life in Canada’s industrial heartland… Immensely revealing and rewarding.
