This engrossing piece of undercover reportage has been a fixture on the INew York TimesI best seller list since its publication. With nearly a million copies in print, INickel and DimedI is a modern classic that deftly portrays the plight of Americas working-class poor.p
A successful author, Barbara Ehrenreich decides to see if she can scratch out a comfortable living in a blue-collar America obsessed with welfare reform. Her first job is waitressing, which pulls in a measly $2.43 an hour plus tips. She moves around the country, trying her hand as a maid, a nursing home assistant, and a Wal-Mart salesperson. What she discovers is a culture of desperation, where workers take multiple thankless jobs just to keep a roof overhead.p
Often humorous and always illuminating, INickel and DimedI is a remarkable expose of the ugly flip side of the American dream.
