The truth

by robertr on Oct 28, 2010

This tells about how so many of our people today are working so hard just to get by, and how there must be changes made to help these poor Americans.

Nickel and Dimed

by gocureton on Oct 22, 2009

This book was required for school; it is really a good book to help those working for minimum wage. It gives an understanding to what society thinks of the lower class.

Got Money?

by Rinken57 on Sep 24, 2007

Seeing how the other side lives without the fear. She tries to see and emanulate the poor woorking class by pretending she is a poor person who struggles for a living. She tries hard but she has a saftey net of being wealthy so she does get a small taste of poverty but never does she put herself in the danger poor must live everyday. She lived in safe housing and drove to work. She did not mention mixing with other people that have tendencies towards violence. She gets some of the feelings of the working poor right but she really misses the big picture of the oppression the working classes feel everyday.
