Nickeling and Diming the Needy
Sermon by the Rev. Marek Zabriskie on Sunday, September 29, 2019. In her book Nickeled and Dimed, Barbara Ehrenreich tells the story of taking a series of low paying jobs to see what it is like to earn and live on $6 or $7 an hour. She notes that almost 30% of the workforce earns $8 an hour or less.
