Earlier this month, C-Span aired NYU professor Andrew Ross' discussion on job instability in an increasingly globalized (and, thanks to the current downturn, shrinking) economy. His book, Nice Work if You Can Get It: Life and Labor in Precarious Times, addresses why people are forced to change jobs so frequently these days. Watch the video clip here. And since C-Span only covers the occassional talk, check out the podcasts on our website if you'd like to catch up on others.
In other Tenement Talks news, folk artist Chris Lowe has posted the two songs ("Downtown" and "The Muse of Jones Alley") that inspired the theme of tonight's Lower East Side Stories installment on his Myspace page. Lowe will be performing live at the event.
