Nickel and Dimed

Thursday, September 11, 2008

Comfortably upper-middle-class writer Ehrenreich takes a crack at voluntarily entering the low-wage "unskilled" workforce, attempting to live entirely off the salaries of whatever jobs she can get, and quickly makes a discovery that we all could have told her beforehand - it really sucks down here. The book is a bit less strong than it could be given Ehrenreich's cluelessness going into the situation, but it is still a damning testimony (and strongly on the side of the workers) against the system of wage slavery upon which America is built.
