Summary
The author looks into the lives of individual store clerks and factory workers, farm laborers and sweatshop seamstresses, illegal immigrants in menial jobs and Americans saddled with immense student loans and paltry wages. They are known as the working poor. He unravels the forces that confine people to low wages. This book also offers compelling portraits of employers struggling against razor-thin profits and competition from abroad
Summary
A portrait of poverty-level working families from a range of ethnic backgrounds in America reveals their legacy of low-paying, dead-end jobs, dysfunctional parenting, and substance abuse
