Nickel and Dimed free pdf Millions of Americans work full-time, year-round, for poverty level wages. Distinguished journalist Barbara Ehrenreich decided to join them, in order to find out how anyone survives on six to seven dollars an hour.

So began a gruelling, hair-raising and darkly funny odyssey through the underside of working America.
