I just finished reading this book. Short and well-written, highly recommended.
 
I was inspired to think differently when I read Barbara Ehrenreich's Nickel and Dimed in America. If you don't have time for the book, read this Atlantic article, which brings the story up to date. I love her notion that minimum wage workers are philanthropists, giving their work to the rest of society for less than it costs to provide.
Minimum-wage jobs are physically demanding, have unpredictable schedules, and pay so meagerly that workers can't save up enough to move on.
