Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century

Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century

by Jessica Bruder Author

To many people who live in the United States, stability comes from a strong economy, steady employment, and a retirement plan. However, there are tens of thousands of Americans who make up a growing community of transient workers—a highly exploited low-cost labor pool that moves wherever opportunity and circumstance takes it. Jessica Bruder's Nomadland tells a relevatory tale of these workers and what it takes for them to survive.
