The Working Poor

From Frank DelBalso
Title: The Working Poor
Author: David Shipler
This books tells of the struggles that poor working people experience in getting out of poverty. The author has a liberal slant but does on occasion also criticize the poor for their self inflicted problems. Several detail stories are told about individual people which are interesting but I found it difficult to make any political conclusions from these stories which were not backed up by any statistics.
