Ehreirch/Serving in Florida
A 3 page overview of an essay on what it is like to hold down a low-wage job. In her essay "Serving in Florida," Barbara Ehreirch describes what it is like to be on the low end of the socioeconomic ladder, surviving on wages and tips, which collectively equal the minimum wage, while working as a waitress in Florida's food service industry. Ehreirch's experience demonstrates that while management theories and practices regarding white-collar workers may have changed in recent years--becoming more progressive--these humanistic reforms have failed to filter down to pink-collar work, as Ehreirch and her co-workers are treated more like indentured servants or automatons than human beings.
