Can a middle-aged, middle-class woman survive, when she suddenly has to make beds
all day in a hotel and live on $7 an hour? Maybe. But one $7-an-hour job won't
pay the rent: she'll have to do back-to-back shifts, as a chambermaid and a waitress.
This isn't the first surprise for acclaimed author Barbara, who set out to research
low-wage life firsthand, confident she was prepared for the worst. Barbara Ehrenreich's
best-seller about her odyssey is vivid and witty, yet always deeply sobering.
