Nickel and Dimed can be a great addition to a unit on modern nonfiction. When a journalist decides to go undercover as a minimum wage worker, she discovers just how challenging life is for millions of Americans. Ehrenreich's stinging critique of welfare reform will make your students think about responsibility—of both individuals and governments—and it's a great starting point for conversations about the causes and effects of income inequality.
