Description

In a highly accessible mix of narrative and interviews with social science research, Dodson unearths the untold story of a silent movement for justice in contemporary America. Lisa Dodson spent eight years interviewing more than 800 supervisors, teachers and healthcare workers about their experiences interacting with the working poor. She repeatedly heard accounts of people bending the rules to help workers get by. These stories point to a surprising and inspiring phenomenon of the middle class refusing to be complicit in a fundamentally unfair enconomy.
