Description

On January 31, 2005, the John Adams Institute welcomed Barbara Ehrenreich, who talked about her book 'Nickel and Dimed - On (Not) Getting By in America)'.

Millions of Americans work full time and more, often juggling two jobs, yet still fall below the poverty line. In 'Nickel and Dimed: On (not) Getting by in America', journalist and social critic Barbara Ehrenreich goes undercover in low-wage America to experience the grinding treadmill of the 'working poor', and discover how they keep body, mind and home together. Whether a waitress, cleaner, cashier or nurse's aide, she discovered that no job is unskilled and that a living wage is far from guaranteed no matter how hard you work.
