Nickel and Dimed: On Not Getting By in America

#ad
Picador #ad - She lived in trailer parks and crumbling residential motels. Read it for the smoldering clarity of Ehrenreich's perspective and for a rare view of how "prosperity" looks from the bottom. Moving from florida to maine to minnesota, a hotel maid, a nursing-home aide, she worked as a waitress, a cleaning woman, and a Wal-Mart sales clerk.

She was inspired in part by the rhetoric surrounding welfare reform, which promised that a job -- any job -- can be the ticket to a better life. She also learned that one job is not enough; you need at least two if you int to live indoors. Nickel and dimed reveals low-rent america in all its tenacity, anxiety, and surprising generosity -- a land of Big Boxes, fast food, and a thousand desperate stratagems for survival.

But how does anyone survive, let alone prosper, Ehrenreich left her home, took the cheapest lodgings she could find, on $6 an hour? To find out, and accepted whatever jobs she was offered. Very quickly, she discovered that no job is truly "unskilled, " that even the lowliest occupations require exhausting mental and muscular effort.

God and the Welfare State

#ad
The MIT Press #ad - God and the welfare State is the first book to trace the ideas behind George W. Most critics didn't ask whether it could work. Although bush's initiative roughly overlaps with more conventional conservative efforts to strengthen private power in economic life, it promises an unprecedented shift in the balance of power between secular and religious approaches to social problems and suggests a broader template for "faith-based governance, " in which the state would have a much more limited role in social policy.

Comparing bush's plan with the ways the same ideas have played out in Christian Democratic welfare policies in Europe, the author is skeptical that it will be an effective new way to fight poverty. But he takes the animating ideas very seriously, as they go to the heart of the relationship among religion, government, and social welfare.
