Is “business as usual” hurting more than 90 million Americans?
Safwan Shah, author of It’s About Time and founder/CEO of PayActiv, offers a head-slapping understanding of how we came to pay American workers and the predatory practices positioned as “help” that create financial stress and reduce productivity. Shah details the role time plays in our society and why “it’s about time” for company leaders to right this wrong.
Walk away ready to reconsider “the way we’ve always done it” as a business strategy for fighting poverty and economic injustice—for your workforce, community, and country.
