Contribute to the "Books That Shaped Work in America" Initiative

To help celebrate its 100th anniversary, U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) created an initiative geared toward literature and the workforce. Partnering with Center for the Book in the Library of Congress, the Books That Shaped Work in America project aims to "spark a national conversation about the impact of books on overall American life and culture."

DOL asked a diverse group of individuals to get the list started, including former secretaries of labor, author Daniel Pink, Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez and other DOL employees. Visit the site to read recommendations and learn more about the initiative. DOL encourages the public to submit recommendations and help grow this initiative.
