A group for the discussion of the written word. Though we'd like to see folks active in the industry, you need not be published or working in the industry to join in and ideally there will be help and motivation for those wanting to write. All that is required is a love of the written word and an interest in how it's done.
United States workers have experienced many hardships through out the past 245 years. Yet just for being in the modern era, does not warrant that those hard ships have past. In the book, On The Clock is meant to be an insight into the workplace of service jobs within the United States. The author traveled around the country, working for 3 different companies and 3 distinct jobs, all the while documenting the troubles and hardships she found there and the over all understanding of how job turnover rates are incorporated into the system. Working as much, as fast, and efficiently as possible for as little pay as possible. Can be maddening to most any person, and is maddening to many, whom struggle to get by with such working conditions.
