All Iain Levison really wants is a steady paycheck, cable television, and the possibility of a date on Saturday night. But after blowing $40,000 on an English degree, he can t find the first, can t afford the second, and can t even imagine what woman would consent to the third. So he embarks on a time-honored American tradition: scoring a few dead-end jobs until something better comes along. The problem is, it never does.
"e;A Working Stiff's Manifesto"e; is a laugh-out-loud memoir of one man s quest to stay afloat. From the North Carolina piedmont to the Alaskan waters, Levison s odyssey takes him on a cross-country tour of wage labor: gofer, oil deliveryman, mover, fish cutter, restaurant manager, cable thief, each job more mind-numbing than the last. "e;A Working Stiff's Manifesto"e; will resonate with anyone who has ever suffered a demeaning job, worn a name badge, or felt the tyranny of the time clock."e;
