Read from December 16, 2010 to January 15, 2011

To write this book, Gabriel Thompson worked at three different jobs that are mostly worked by immigrants (both legal and illegal) over the course of a year. He spent several months working as a lettuce picker, working in a poultry plant, and as a bicycle deliveryman for a high end Mexican restaurant in New York City. It was a really interesting book with lots of insights into what it's like to do these types of jobs and the reasons why this work mostly falls to immigrant workers. I would highly recommend this book.
