“In her New York Times bestselling book Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive, author Stephanie Land shares her story and other real stories of overworked and underpaid American workers. She tells their story of living on food stamps and coupons to eat. She tells them of the programs from the government that provided her basic housing. She tells of the arrangement that also doubled as halfway houses. She told them of aloof government employees who have called her lucky for being able to receive the assistance she needs. Stephanie Land did not feel any bit of luck. She then wrote their stories to commemorate their fight and to be able to eventually cut through the stigmas of belonging in the working poor. Through Stephanie Land’s compassionate and unflinching writing style, she gives a journalist’s perspective about the "servant" worker. She writes about those who are pursuing the great American Dream hailing from below the poverty line. Maid is an inspiring tribute to the determination, resilience, strength, and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit.”
