Is The American Dream Possible For Most People Anymore?

Or is this just a Fairy Tale?

2 good discussions about how hard it is to be a working American trying to live on today's wages, and how hard it is just to survive. Barbara Ehrenreich is included in the discussion. She discusses here experiences working undercover in low wage America and what she learned from talking to those who are struggling everyday.

Her previous book on the subject was called "Nickel & Dimed" which covered her experiences as a blue collar worker.

Her latest book is called "Bait & Switch" and talks about the struggles of White Collar America.

Discussion 1 "Nickel & Dimed" (Blue Collar America) & Discussion 2 "Bait & Switch: The Futile Pursuit of the American Dream".
