Description - Betrayal Of Work by Beth Shulman
Following in the footsteps of Barbara Ehrenreich's 2001 bestseller Nickel and Dimed, Betrayal of Work provides the fullest portrait of America's working poor. Beth Schulman spent several years travelling across the country, talking to those on low wages. She dispels a number of myths along the way: that lower unemployment has meant better living conditions for the poor; that making bad jobs into good jobs requires insurmountably difficult reforms; that low-wage work is always low-skilled.
