Download the handout for Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive by Stephanie Land – For Urban Engagement Book Club, October 15, 2020

Maid coverMaid by Stephanie Land is a single mother’s personal, unflinching look at America’s class divide, a description of the tightrope many families walk just to get by, and a reminder of the dignity of all work.

———————

Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive by Stephanie Land is a wonderful book to read.  Maid is also a very difficult book to read.

If I could recommend only two books to read that capture the reality of life among the low pay workers among us, I would first recommend Nickel and Dimed: On Not Getting by In America by Barbara Ehrenreich.  The second one would be this book, Maid, by Stephanie Land.  And, by the way, Barbara Ehrenreich wrote the forward to this book.

I am presenting this at the Urban Engagement Book Club, sponsored by CitySquare – on Zoom, Thursday, October 15, 12:30pm, Central Time.
