Nickel And Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich

Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America is a book written by Barbara Ehrenreich. Written from the perspective of the undercover journalist, it sets out to investigate the impact of the 1996 welfare reform on the "working poor" in the United States. In some ways it is similar to George Orwell's much earlier Down and Out in Paris and London, German investigative reporter G√ľnter Wallraff's Ganz Unten (The Lowest of the Low), and John Howard Griffin's Black Like Me.
