Amazon 5 STAR review
Hell on Wheels?September 23, 2017Format: HardcoverVibrant and sobering take on where America’s middle class has gone. With real middle class wages stuck in the seventies, too many baby boomers have reached retirement before their nest egg can support them. Trapped between rising rents, ancient lingering student loans and ageism, workers in their sixties and seventies are living in vans, cars and old school busses while crossing the country for minimum wage seasonal jobs at parks, beet farms and Amazon fulfillment centers. Survivalism, comradery, ingenuity and humor have created fascinating tribes that celebrate and help one another in this quasi-dystopian culture on wheels. Great idea and excellent reporting!
