read × E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ë Linda Tirado Linda Tirado Ë 9 summary Hand to Mouth review õ 9 She went from lower middle class to sometimes middle class to poor and everything in between and in doing so reveals why “poor people don’t always behave the way middle class America thinks they should”. I wasn t going to review this book looking over other reviews and gleaning a bit from social media it feels vaguely counterproductive But I m still writing so let s give it a shot and I ll explain why the reticenceBasically Linda Tirado finds herself propelled onto bookshelves everywhere when a random post she wrote about living an impoverished life goes viral and wrote a book that s essentially that same post but with several hundred pages stuffed into it a preface by Barbara Ehrenreich As I recall thinking as I neared the end of the book that this was essentially a letter to rich people or people who are at least better off than Tirado bam begins the chapter that is essentially an open snarky letter Dear Rich PeopleSome on the internet have taken to calling her original post and this book poverty porn While I don t think one should dismiss what Tirado is demonstrating and what she demonstrates is far telling than what she actually writes there is a grain of truth to calling it poverty porn While she presents some numbers at the beginning portion of the book to give an idea of what people are juggling in every day lives this is largely a subjective book and the numbers are really kind of meaningless Anyone who s ever worked shit jobs doesn t need numbers to prove it but maybe rich people do I don t know This is about the biggest academic thrust her work has and it s a weak one at that In the end this is really a memoir about poverty than anything else and it should be noted that I listened to this on audio It s likely that perhaps the book felt laid back in regular print but the narration came across as snarky derisive and all together as though the author was getting a lot of joy out of giving it to the man through her subjective observations of the unfairness of it all I don t care that she uses foul language to make her point but I do care whether she argues well and that just doesn t come across for me This is why it s characterized as poverty porn it s feeding an emotional hot button but the calories are emptyNow subjects she brings up have merit The way workers are treated in the work place and the laws designed to protect their interests which turn out to be empty promises employers constantly violate these things are real I hope readers as turned off by her stance as I was understand it s not worth throwing the baby out with the bath water She provided me with the biggest laugh of the week when in her chapter about politics she bemoans why poor people should even care about uantitative easing when they re busy with their own impoverishment Funny story I studied economics In a library For free And I can tell you about subjects like uantitative easing and the velocity of money deflation and inflationTirado can bitch about a work place whose standards are degrading but she can t decode why Tirado can dismiss politics but she can t perceive the relationship between lost political trust and the disappearing dollar and the corruption the loss of money inevitably leads to Tirado can finish a poorly worded argument with the word really but she can t grasp the bigger economic game of musical chairs going on all around her The reason I debated even doing a review is because Tirado s poverty porn inevitably led to outrage porn Plenty of comments and reviews of people taking Tirado to task because apparently rumor is she was born in good circumstances went to a boarding school ate cakes baked in pure gold swam in Olympic swimming pools filled with 100 dollar bills I don t know and I don t really care because the only thing this demonstrates isn t whether Tirado is a fraud or not it just demonstrates how desperate everyone is to commodify their poverty and hop on Tirado s coat tails like a flea market setting up tents behind Wal Mart The day everyone scans in their tax returns so we can evaluate just how poor is poor enough to complain about being poor then maybe I ll pause to give your outrage the attention you think it deserves but the moral of this story is anyone born in America today is still living richer than many countries around the globe There are people out there poorer than you are It s disgusting to watch impoverished people at all levels yell at each other about how their poverty is better than everyone else s the same way it would be disgusting if rich people argued about who s wealth was better than everyone else s wealth when they re all standing on the shoulders of the global community to keep their heads above water and they don t even know it Those shirts made in Sri Lanka came from some where Those factory items made in China Those coffee beans from Chile Those customer service calls from India from Argentina All brought to you by the largesse of unimaginable pain and intolerable circumstances The point is I m not using that fact to invalidate the pain of those suffering economic hardship and I m certainly not using it to invalidate someone else s subjective experience because it s easier to attack Tirado than it is to demand that people in positions of power in corporation and government behave themselves and demand they be held to the rule of law Taking Tirado down a notch benefits no one no where Holding corrupt people who stole your money to a higher standard might actually be a step in the right directionTirado s circumstances and whether they re satisfactorily poor enough to suit the public is ironically in some ways the point she s trying to make because poor people are being tasked to justify their choices whereas the affluent are often given a golden pass on similar behaviors and choices like as she points out having children If she has twenty kids she s a statistic looking to collect welfare If a rich person has twenty kids they re just making a family Ultimately not really the best book out there Ehrenreich s books are definitely better but if you re in the mood to read this book after a fourteen hour shift at work and chain smoke in defiance of those rich healthy people and hand your money over to Phillip Morris Inc knock yourself out As if life wasn t short enough already by the time you finish this book you ll wish it were shorter
