Overview:

Hand to Mouth : As the haves and have-nots grow more separate and unequal in America, the working poor don't get heard from much. Now they have a voice - and it's forthright, funny, and just a little bit furious.

Here, Linda Tirado tells what it's like, day after day, to work, eat, shop, raise kids, and keep a roof over your head without enough money. She also answers questions often asked about those who live on or near minimum wage: Why don't they get better jobs? Why don't they make better choices? Why do they smoke cigarettes and have ugly lawns? Why don't they borrow from their parents?

Enlightening and entertaining, Hand to Mouth opens up a new and much-needed dialogue between the people who just don't have it and the people who just don't get it.
