The bestselling writer of Nickel and Dimed is going again undercover to do for America’s in poor health center category what she did for the operating poor
Barbara Ehrenreich’s Nickel and Dimed explored the lives of low-wage staff. Now, in Bait and turn, she enters one other hidden realm of the economic system: the shadowy international 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 profession training and character checking out, then trawling a sequence 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 angle, but is proselytized, scammed, lectured, and—again and again—rejected.
Bait and turn highlights the folk who’ve performed every thing right—gotten university levels, constructed marketable abilities, and outfitted up outstanding résumés—yet became time and again liable to bankruptcy, and never easily as a result vagaries of the enterprise cycle. Today’s ultra-lean firms take pleasure in laying off their “surplus” employees—plunging them, for months or years at a stretch, into the twilight area 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 safety even should 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 count on it.
