Raising Expectations (And Raising Hell)
My Decade Fighting for the Labor Movement

Raising Expectations (And Raising Hell): My Decade Fighting for the Labor Movement was named by the Nation Magazine as the Most Valuable Book of 2012, on its Progressive Honor Roll. The Nation admired the spirit of this “memoir/manifesto, which calls for putting the ‘movement’ back into the labor movement.” 

Raising Expectations is a breath-taking trip through the union organizing scene of America in the 21st century. In the battles McAlevey recounts, hardly anyone comes out standing tall. But her story, along with those of so many brave health care workers, fills me with hope.

—Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed
