BAIT AND SWITCH by Barbara Ehrenreich


BAIT AND SWITCH by Barbara Ehrenreich NEW audiobook 6 CDs unabridged. original box Read by Anne Twomey list $29.95 Z72

Barbara Ehrenreichs now looks at the shadowy world of the white collar unemplyed. Armed with a plausible resume as a professional "in transition", she attempts to land a middle class job - undergoing career coaching, personality testing, and an image makeover, then trawling a series of EST-like boot camps, job fairs, networking events and evangelical job-search ministries. She is proselytized, scammed, lectured, and - again and again - rejected.

Bait and Switch highlights the people who've done everything right - gotten college degrees, developed marketable skills, and built up impressive resumes - yet have become repeatedly vulnerable to financial disaster and not simply due to the vagaries of the business cycle, today's ultra lean corporations take pride in shedding their "surplus employees - plunging them, for months or years at a stretch, into the twilight zone of white-collar unemployment, where job searching bercomes a full time job in itself. As she discovers, there are few social supports for these newly disposable workers - and little security even for those that have jobs. Z72
