“Nickel and Dimed”

October 18, 2010

Special Location: Fisher Auditorium

Millions of Americans work for poverty-level wages, and one day Barbara Ehrenreich decided to join them. She was inspired in part by the rhetoric surrounding welfare reform, which promised that any job equals a better life. But how can anyone survive or prosper on $6 to $7 an hour?

Join Common Freshman Reader Nickel and Dimed author Barbara Ehrenreich as she discusses her experiences “not getting by in America.”

Cosponsored by the Common Freshman Reader.
