there is no such thing as unskilled labor, she says, and of course she is right

When you go on really long plane rides you need really good books. This is what I read going from San Francisco to Amsterdam a few weeks ago. Nickel and Dimed was first published in 2001 and it is just great. In it Barbara Ehrenreich tells the stories of what she learns as she, an highly educated woman, is working low wage jobs.

Nothing I could say would do it justice. Read it.
