Bait and Switch : The (Futile) Pursuit of the American Dream
The best-selling author of Nickel and Dimed focuses on the world of white-collar unemployment as seen through the eyes of the unemployed, describing the woes of "surplus" employees, let go by today's ultra-lean corporations, who are forced to confront, sometimes for months or years at a stretch, the realities of financial hardship with few social supports or security. Reprint. 150,000 first printing.
