Description

Middle class executives are the people who’ve done everything right – gotten college degrees, developed marketable skills and build up impressive resumes – yet they have become repeatedly vulnerable to financial disaster. In Bait and Switch, Ehrenreich enters a shadowy world of Internet job searches, lonely networking events and costly career-coaching sessions, a world in which ‘professional’ mentors and trainers offer pop-psychology and self-help mantras to desperate would-be employees.

Poignant and blackly funny, Bait and Switch delivers a stark warning about the future that faces corporate employees everywhere and calls for collective action to guard against it.
