PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an article that appeared in the newspaper and I immediately knew I had to use this with my students when teaching "Nickel and Dimed" by Barbara Ehrenreich. Here’s an excerpt:

“In what appears to have been a gesture of goodwill gone haywire, McDonald's recently teamed up with Visa to create a financial planning site for its low-pay workforce. Unfortunately, whoever wrote the thing seems to have been literally incapable of imagining of how a fast food employee could survive on a minimum wage income. As ThinkProgress and other outlets have reported, the site includes a sample budget that, among other laughable assumptions, presumes that workers will have a second job.”
