  1. The author rubs me the wrong way with his I’m-too-good-for-this attitude but if you can dig past that he manages to accomplish his presumed goal of showing the reality of making ends meet on minimum wage… And I appreciate his honesty about how he ended up in the position, which is more interesting than authors who occasionally do low-paid work for a week or month just to see what it’s like and to get a good story.

    • I had similar thoughts after reading it. The guy really was in a desperate situation, especially given his previous status as a (relatively speaking) top journalist.
