$2.00 a day : living on almost nothing in America

"A revelatory account of poverty in America so deep that we, as a country, don't think it exists. The authors [of this book] illuminate a troubling trend: a low-wage labor market that increasingly fails to deliver a living wage, and a growing but hidden landscape of survival strategies among America's extreme poor. More than a powerful expose, $2.00 a Day delivers new evidence and new ideas to our national debate on income inequality." --from Melvyl catalog.
