Becky's Blurbs: Working Poor by David Shipler

One book is getting a considerable amount of press, entitled The Working Poor: Invisible in America, by David Shipler. This work is not scholarly, but it invites readers to take an inside look at the poor who work at the menial jobs that keep our economy going. Shipler is a Pulitizer Prize winner and is a free lance writer. Sociologists, business and labor academics as well as practioners will likely find it to be a comfortable, interesting read--just in time for summer!
