P&P Live! Eyal Press — Dirty Work: Essential Jobs and the Hidden Toll of Inequality in America - with Patrick Radden Keefe

Upcoming Event
Monday, August 16, 2021 - 6:00pm

This event will stream online as a part of our P&P Live! Series

Drone pilots who carry out targeted assassinations. Undocumented immigrants who man the “kill floors” of industrial slaughterhouses. Guards who patrol the wards of the United States’ most violent and abusive prisons. In Dirty Work, Eyal Press offers a paradigm-shifting view of the moral landscape of contemporary America through the stories of people who perform society’s most ethically troubling jobs. As Press shows, we are increasingly shielded and distanced from an array of morally questionable activities that other, less privileged people perform in our name. Dirty Work: Essential Jobs and the Hidden Toll of Inequality in America
