Written from her perspective as an undercover journalist, it sets out to investigate the impact of the 1996 welfare reform act on the working poor in the United States. In some ways it is similar to George Orwell's much earlier Down and Out in Paris and London, German investigative reporter Günter Wallraff's Ganz Unten (The Lowest of the Low), John Howard Griffin's Black Like Me, or, even earlier, Robert Tressell's The Ragged-Trousered Philanthropists and Jack London's The People of the Abyss.
