One of BuzzFeed’s ?21 Amazing New Books You Need to Read This Spring”

?In a Day’s Work is a . . . much-needed addition to the literature on sexual harassment in the U.S.”
?The New York Review of Books

?In a Day’s Work shows that in fact we are in control of what happens next: With vigorous reporting, we can parlay the momentum of #MeToo into real systemic change.”
?The Washington Post

?As pundits opine about #MeToo in the pages of every major newspaper, Yeung does something better: Rather than giver her own view on how to solve the scourge of sexual violence, she shows us what these workers themselves have been doing to address it.”
?Bookforum

?A timely, intensely intimate, and relevant exposé on a greatly disregarded sector of the American workforce.”
?Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

?Bernice Yeung’s scalding exposé should dramatically affect the way we see women’s abuse in the workplace.”
?Barbara Ehrenreich

An acclaimed journalist investigates sexual assault against the invisible workers who are an essential part of the #metoo and #timesup movements

Apple orchards in bucolic Washington state. Office parks in Southern California under cover of night. The home of an elderly man in Miami. These are some of the workplaces where female workers have suffered brutal sexual assault and shocking harassment at the hands of their employers, often with little or no official recourse. In this harrowing yet often inspiring tale, investigative journalist Bernice Yeung exposes the epidemic of sexual violence levied against women farmworkers, domestic workers, and janitorial workers and charts their quest for justice in the workplace.

Yeung takes readers on a journey across the country, introducing us to women who came to America to escape grinding poverty only to encounter sexual violence in the United States. In a Day’s Work exposes the underbelly of economies filled with employers who take advantage of immigrant women’s need to earn a basic living. When these women find the courage to speak up, Yeung reveals, they are too often met by apathetic bosses and underresourced government agencies. But In a Day’s Work also tells a story of resistance, introducing a group of courageous allies who challenge dangerous and discriminatory workplace conditions alongside aggrieved workers—and win. Moving and inspiring, this book will change our understanding of the lives of immigrant women.
