Gibson Read & Download ✓ Not Working ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB E fired from her first job after just a week at work an HR executive dismissed after herself laying off hundreds of her colleagues a cleaner fired in a cafeteria during her lunch break and a real estate executive whose first inkling that something was amiss occurred when he arrived at his office to find it abandonedEach of these stories is different and the detail of how people experience the trauma of being “let go” provides a fascinating core to Not Working But beyond the specifics important general themes emerge the range of the recession which despite the particular vulnerabilities of people of color and the less educated is impacting communities right across the country; the sense of isolatio.
