Uses the experiences of nine families to describe the unique problems faced by the growing class of people who are neither the working poor nor middle class. Traces where these families came from, how they've struggled to make a decent living and why they're stuck without a safety net. Addresses the widening inequities in our society and the elusive quest for the American Dream.
