The Individualized Society

We're spurred into motion through our issues and fears; yet all too usually our motion fails to deal with the real factors of our concerns. while attempting to make feel of our lives, we have a tendency to blame our personal failings and weaknesses for our discomforts and defeats.

Bait and Switch: The (Futile) Pursuit of the American Dream

The bestselling writer of Nickel and Dimed is going again undercover to do for America’s unwell heart category what she did for the operating poor

Barbara Ehrenreich’s Nickel and Dimed explored the lives of low-wage employees. Now, in Bait and turn, she enters one other hidden realm of the economic climate: the shadowy global of the white-collar unemployed. Armed with a believable résumé of a pro “in transition,” she makes an attempt to land a middle-class job—undergoing occupation training and character trying out, then trawling a chain of EST-like boot camps, task gala's, networking occasions, and evangelical job-search ministries. She will get a picture makeover, works to undertaking a successful perspective, but is proselytized, scammed, lectured, and—again and again—rejected.

Bait and turn highlights the folk who’ve performed every thing right—gotten collage levels, constructed marketable abilities, and outfitted up awesome résumés—yet became many times susceptible to financial ruin, and never easily because of the vagaries of the company cycle. Today’s ultra-lean businesses show pride in laying off their “surplus” employees—plunging them, for months or years at a stretch, into the twilight quarter of white-collar unemployment, the place task looking out turns into a full-time task in itself. As Ehrenreich discovers, there are few social helps for those newly disposable workers—and little defense even if you happen to have jobs.

Like the now vintage Nickel and Dimed, Bait and turn is alternately hilarious and tragic, a searing exposé of monetary cruelty the place we least count on it.
