Summary
"What does it mean to work in the forgotten America where millions toil in the shadow of prosperity? What is the daily reality of life for a factory worker or field hand? To find out, award-winning journalist Gabriel Thompson spent a year working alongside America's invisible poor--citizens and immigrants alike--all of whom endure backbreaking work, miniscule wages, and nonexistent benefits in their struggle to make ends meet"--Page 2 of cover
