Ferro was lucky enough to find "full-time underemployment," that is to say, a 21st century revival of good old-fashioned feudalism. In an effort to save her sanity, and the last vestiges of her self-esteem, she started blogging about her adventures: certifiably crazy customers, cranky patients, clueless bosses, bizarre commutes, and other you-had-to-be-there-to-believe-it experiences encountered by a (reasonably) normal, educated adult working at a succession of minimum-wage jobs.
Highlights from her blog have now been condensed into this book: a wicked, unvarnished, laugh-out-loud look at what Americans of all stripes are facing in today's uncertain labor market.
"Talented blogger Linda Ferro somehow manages to make getting fired, feeling old, and finding underpaid work in dead-end jobs sound like fun! 'Underemployed Is the New Organic' is a confidential head-trip into Ferro's world, where any problem can be solved with a flask, a credit card, and a whip-smart sense of humor." - Joyce Hanson, author, A Couple of Savages
