Bread and Raises: Songs for Working Women

Bread and Raises: Songs for Working Women

I’m "ninety pounds of fire in a five-foot frame and you’d better move on over" because I’m tired of working for "59 cents for every man’s dollar!" Bobbie McGhee means business, literally, in this album dedicated to the working woman. Singing the songs of Si Khan, Willie Sordill, Jane Levine and others, McGhee proves that women are a force to be reckoned with and deserve their bread, roses and raises too.
