She will get a picture makeover, works to venture a successful angle, but is proselytized, scammed, lectured, and—again and again—rejected.

Bait and turn highlights the folks who’ve performed every little thing right—gotten university levels, constructed marketable abilities, and equipped up remarkable résumés—yet became again and again prone to financial ruin, and never easily as a result of vagaries of the enterprise cycle.

As Ehrenreich discovers, there are few social helps for those newly disposable workers—and little protection even if you 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 anticipate it.
