Instant review: interesting, if you’re interested.
Inspired by Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich (also quite interesting), this book sees journo Elisabeth Wynhausen go undercover, moving from minimum wage job to minimum wage job to have a look in at how the other half lives.
Takeaway: life’s tough at the bottom; the people who set the rules should have a bit of empathy.
For: those interested in the lives (especially of women) in minimum wage jobs in Australia.
Not for: those not interested etc etc.
