Barbara Ehrenreich's Bait and Switch

Sep 11, 2006

We've always admired author Barbara Ehrenreich, both for her groundbreaking works of investigative journalism and for her strong voice as an advocate for American workers. Her latest book, Bait and Switch: The (Futile) Pursuit of the American Dream, is now out in paperback. In this follow-up to her first bestseller, Nickel and Dimed, Ehrenreich goes undercover to explore the world of the white-collar unemployed.

Bait & Switch

Ehrenreich uses her experiences on the job hunt as a lens to examine the current culture of work in the U.S. The result is a searing look at the new economy and its casualties.

Barbara Ehrenreich is on a nationwide tour now. You can find Bait and Switch at your local independent bookstore or at retailers online.
