Moderated by Mr. Herman, three authors discussed living in America while working for minimum wage as “unskilled” workers. The authors argued that no job is truly “unskilled,” and that all workers, even those in the lowliest occupations find pride in a job well done and should be treated with intrinsic dignity. The panelists answered questions from members of the audience.
