Hand to Mouth

Free read Hand to Mouth 107 We in America have certain ideas of what it means to be poor Linda Tirado in her signature brutally honest yet personable voice takes all of these preconceived notions and smashes them to bits She articulates. It amazes me how much I have in common with Linda Tirdao I like Tirado had a caring family and a relatively privileged upbringing I like Tirado spent my 20s taking low paying jobs and making shitty financial choices while living an ideal existence in Europe And as with Tirado shit got real when I had a child But there alas our paths diverge I returned to the USA and turned my writing into a side business while I went to graduate school When shit hit the fan during my second year of grad school and I really was in poverty not the chosen kind this time I learned a valuable lesson no one owes you a damn thing so be grateful for the friends and communities that help you and work your ass off to get out of it Linda Tirado instead kept working minimum wage jobs found out she couldn t live off of that salary with kids in tow and got all grumpy She also figured out that working parenting and attending college is really hard Then she wrote an untrue stereotype laden essay claiming to be in poverty promoted it on Gawker set up a GoFundMe and collected 80000 from well meaning but gullible readers who believed her story Tirado then did some backpedaling meandered and somewhere in a rambling update on GoFundMe 80000 later mind you mentioned that she s not actually poor had grandparents who had bought her a house etc etc Perhaps she admitted to not being poor because careful readers had already begun poking holes in her poverty story In any case the original publishers of her essay stammered out something like a retraction Tirado walked away with a book deal took a trip to Vegas without her kids got some new tattoos wrote her book and has somehow been dubbed The woman who accidentally explained poverty to a nation Maya Angelou must be turning over in her graveAnd what does all of this have to do with the book Let me put it this way I ve been Linda Tirado spoiled entitled and aghast at just how much it sucks having to work for your money But Linda Your whole poverty kick Don t bullshit a bullshitter Reading this book just created an obnoxious argument between my brain and the words on the page Every Single Thing Is Wrong Well wrong or completely embellished The book doesn t have the meth induced rambling uality of Tirado s internet essays and for that I m grateful to whoever edited the damn thing But can the boys at Putnam bother to hire a fact checker or give the job of spotting bullshit to a non millennial Please Here are a few of my favorites Tirado is outraged that contract work deprives people of a regular salary and benefits Um What is she even talking about Contractors earn than salaried employees precisely because they pay for their own benefits And guess what Contract work gets a lot of people in the door and into full time permanent positions with companies that otherwise wouldn t even have interviewed them Continuing on the contractor rant Tirado s assumption that FTEs are better off than contractors because of job security is nauseatingly naive A full time employee can walk into work on any given morning and be laid off for no reason at all At least contractors have definitive start and end dates But I guess for Tirado to know any of this she d have to have worked a real jobwhich probably isn t necessary when your grandparents buy you a house Eually irritating is Tirado s assumption that salaried employees with benefits are better off than minimum wage workers with crappy benefits In fact Tirado discusses at length the humiliation of working your ass off while remaining poor Linda Dear Don t ever assume anything about anyone else s financial state Ever There are people who work their asses off have benefits make 80000 a year and are in financial dire straits Don t believe me Think about single parents Think about people living in high cost of living areas Think about student loan debt Car payments The cost of childcare Think about medical bills or better yet people with kids who have huge medical bills If Tirado had any understanding of work money and paying for shit herself she might be surprised at how uickly any of the aforementioned scenarios eat up a fat salaryand just how many in the top 25% of earners are one paycheck away from the street that is no better off than the working poor she whines about No Linda I m afraid the rest of the world doesn t have it better than you after all And you ve gotta love Tirado s attitude towards work She bemoans the fact that she s been told contradictory things by her bosses ieUse coffee but save coffee And she also doesn t like that companies make her recite lines to customers which she claims is paying her to pretend I m not me and that I care about you Sigh Being given contradictory instructions by the boss Being asked to act in a professional manner towards customers Yeah I guess I call that work I guess I call that part of the job Work sucks for sure Know what sucks Not having a job And when she s not making asinine assumptions that the world just has it so much better than she does Tirado twists the truth in ways that made me wish I had a wood burning fireplace for this book to call home Examples She supposedly knew a stripper who got fired for not having good enough breast implants Really That s funny because until 2012 when dancers started suing strippers were always independent contractors not club employees The strippers paid the club to be able to dance there Strippers dues were a huge source of a club s income and they didn t get fired for fuck s sake Dancers were barred from working only if they owed back rent to the club As for the story of being fired for a bad boob job Sigh Strip clubs are dark the only illumination comes from dim red lights purposely chosen because they mask every physical flaw In that environment no one is going to see the silicone leaking And in an industry where fucking customers for money and blowing lines in the bathroom are no biggies trust me you re not getting fired for your tits Someone is lying here and given her track record with the truth I ll wager it s Linda She says college didn t make financial sense for her because it was so expensive What does make financial sense then Not investing the time and money into working your way toward a degree and a better life and thus remaining poor Heh When I was in grad school I knew at least 3 other single mothers pursuing their undergrad degreesbut nevermind college doesn t make sense Tirado says I don t smile Someone found a picture of me smiling from back in 2006 before my front teeth went and a wisdom tooth cracked off Fuuuuck me This time last year wasn t it a car accident that knocked out all of her teeth When a person can t even keep her own lies straight she s not worth my time Yeah This kind of arguing back and forth with a book written by an author whose credibility is already less than zero I couldn t take it I mean why not write something useful How about suggesting that we start teaching economics and money management to middle schoolers and reiterating to the next generation that minimum wage cannot be their life plan How about suggesting things that communities can do to help people get the skills to get off the minimum wage Of course Tirado gives us none of this I can t say I m surprised The book gets one star for being the physical proof that my fellow Gen Y ers really are a generation of self obsessed lazy entitled a %les who don t want to work and for proving that in the publishing world you don t need talentjust a sentimental sob story and a few gullible

Free read Hand to Mouth 107 She went from lower middle class to sometimes middle class to poor and everything in between and in doing so reveals why “poor people don’t always behave the way middle class America thinks they should”. I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway and the cover stated Uncorrected Proof For Limited Distribution I rated this book one star but it did not deserve even that The class envy and irrational fury was palpable from page 1 Though the author stated a couple of times that she was speaking for herself on nearly every page she was definitely attempting to give the impression that her bad temper her description and nasty attitude were nearly universal among poor people I was born into a poor family in the southern coalfields of West Virginia The only folks I knew for many many years were poor My husband was from an even poorer family in north central West Virginia poor enough that most days there wasn t enough to eat In fact after spending many years in the middle class we now find ourselves back down at the federal poverty level I never make that capital letters met any full caps on that too poor person with this author s attitude The folks I knew were good church going folks who didn t depend on alcohol or drugs or verbally lashing out to help them cope And they sure as shootin didn t have the filthy language that this author displays The book is only 191 pages long yet the author managed to use some form of the f bomb 63 times Yes for the first time in my life I felt compelled to keep a running score for the use of that word This book is not worth the paper it was printed on It would have been easier going to YouTube and looking up news footage of the Occupy Wall Street idiots which by the way was simply a repeat of Russia in the first 17 years of the 20th century

Linda Tirado à 7 Free read

Free read Hand to Mouth 107 Not only what it is to be working poor in America yes you can be poor and live in a house and have a job even two but what poverty is truly like on all levels Frankly and boldly Tirado discusses openly how. Before I review this book a brief account of my bona fides are in order I am a child of privilege and I have really always lived in privilege There have been times when money was tight but that was because of mismanagement of resources not because the resources weren t there I worked as a volunteer with battered women in the mid 80s professionally at a food bank in the mid 90s and then recently again as a volunteer for residential program for homeless men and for a feeding program for seniors I have also worked professionally with school systems educators and students many of them in inner cities or poor rural regionsWhile Linda Tirado is probably better educated and articulate than a lot of the people I ve worked with she is telling their story or a version of their story This is the truth about what it means to be poor in the US and why it is so profoundly difficult to get un poor even with a bunch of advantages like some educationThis is a gorgeous honest work If everyone who automatically thinks anyone who is poor is a lazy loser could set that aside for a moment and read this book with an open heart it could change the world

    PDF/EPUB Hand to Mouth This book just ticked me off The thesis statement seems to be Why bother trying As someone who has a background not dissimilar from the author's I'm mad that she feels she is explaining my life to rich people By her own admission she has a diagnosed anger management problem for which she has refused treatment She wants a doctor who she can call when she feels like it won't demand to see her in person and will write prescription
