520    "It's not your father's working class anymore. It's more 
       female, more diverse racially, and it doesn't wear 
       Carhartt's and a hard hat anymore. Sleeping Giant is the 
       first major examination of this dynamic and increasingly 
       activist class and the role it will play in our political 
       and economic future. What does "working class" mean in 
       today's America? Today's workers don't just man the 
       assembly lines. They watch our children and aging parents,
       park our cars, screen our luggage, clean our offices and 
       hotel rooms, cook our take-out meals and stock our store 
       shelves. And they are blacker, browner, and more female 
       than the old working class. They are not as organized, in 
       terms of their unions and political clout, but they are 
       demographically powerful and are awakening to that power. 
       The new working class is indeed a "sleeping giant," and 
       Tamara Draut will blend up-close-and-personal individual 
       narratives with historical background and sophisticated 
       analysis to explain how they are about to change America 
       for the better"--|cProvided by publisher.
