Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America
Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in
Our sharpest and most original social critic goes "undercover" as an unskilled worker to reveal the dark side of American prosperity.Millions of Americans work full time, year round, for poverty-level wages. In 1998, Barbara Ehrenreich decided to join them. She was inspired in part by the rhetoric surrounding welfare reform, which promised that a job -- any job -- can be the ticket to a better life. But how does anyone survive, let alone prosper, on $6 an hour? To find out, Ehrenreich left her home, took the cheapest lodgings she could find, and accepted whatever jobs she was offered. Moving from Florida to Maine to Minnesota, she worked as a waitress, a hotel maid, a cleaning woman, a nursing-home aide, and a Wal-Mart sales clerk. She lived in trailer parks and crumbling residential motels. Very quickly, she discovered that no job is truly "unskilled," that even the lowliest occupations require exhausting mental and muscular effort. She also learned that one job is not enough; you need at least two if you int to live indoors.Nickel and Dimed reveals low-rent America in all its tenacity, anxiety, and surprising generosity -- a land of Big Boxes, fast food, and a thousand desperate stratagems for survival.

Where a Nickel Costs a Dime: Poems
Where a Nickel Costs a Dime:
A first book of poems by one of the best new voices to emerge from the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. Where a Nickel Costs a Dime captures the hip-hop rhythms and in-your-face intensity of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, a downtown Manhattan club where the hottest young poets are finding their fame. Willie Perdomo's poems, in the tradition of Amiri Baraka, Langston Hughes, and Ntozake Shange, meet at the intersection of the street and the academy. The world in these piercing and heartbreaking poems is Spanish Harlem, "where night turns to day without sleep," where "Puerto Rico stays on our minds when the fresh breeze of cafe con leche y pan con mantequilla comes through half-opened windows and under our doors," where "babies fall asleep to the bark of a German shepherd," where "Independence Day is celebrated everyday," where "the police come into your house without knocking. They throw us off rooftops and say we slipped. They shoot my father and say he was crazy. They put a bullet in my head and say they found me that way." Blending images of street life, drugs, and AIDS against hope and determination, Willie Perdomo is a cutting-edge bard who speaks to the soul of his generation. .

Pennies, Nickels, & Dimes II: :Perspectives on Entrepreneurship
Our main reason for writing Pennies, Nickels & Dimes-Volume II is to provoke a discussion about the history of the African American entrepreneur and the African American economy. In the book, we examine the past, present and future of African American entrepreneurship in America. What did African American entrepreneurship and the African American economic infrastructure look like 100 years ago, and how does it compare to where we are today? In exploring the economic history of other ethnic groups, we see how timing, opportunity, culture and individual ingenuity impact business and capital formation in America. We also delve into various business funding mechanisms such as venture capital, private equity, angel investing and crowdfunding and propose a starting point for developing a national initiative that would utilize these resources to support the creation and/or expansion of African American-owned businesses.
