"Nickel and Dimed"

Just finished reading "Nickel and Dimed" by Barbara Ehrenreich. In the book, she goes undercover to work a series of minimum-wage jobs to see what life is like for the working class.

After reading it i'm so grateful for everything I have.

A kitchen to store and cook my food
Doors that lock
Health insurance
Paid time off (lots of it actually)
Cable TV
Internet access at home
Great friends to go to for advice if I were to lose my job
More books than I could ever hope to read

and much, much more.
