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.

We live in a golden age of free Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools. It wasn’t that long ago that an engineering workstation was an expensive piece of hardware running very expensive software that typically had annual fees. Now, you can go to your…
