Revisiting "Nickel and Dimed"

In an earlier post, I mentioned the blog of author Barbara Ehrenreich, who wrote one of my favorite books, "Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America." In a post today, Ehrenreich states that the book is currently celebrating its 109th week on the New York Times paperback bestseller list. In light of that accomplishment and as a way of answering some of the reader questions she continues to receive on a daily basis, Ehrenreich answers some "Nickel and Dimed `FAQ's,'" including the "hostile ones." Her answers provide followup information on some of the people she worked with at her various low wage jobs, consider any ethical issues involved in the project and speak to how the writing of the book changed Ehrenreich's life.
