Tamara Draut and Barbara Ehrenreich offer insight and analysis into the economic struggles of the middle class. Ehrenreich is the author of thirteen books, including the New York Times bestseller Nickel and Dimed. Draut is the Director of the Economic Opportunity Program at Demos, a public policy center based in New York City and the author of Strapped.
