For her latest book, “Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America,” writer Barbara Ehrenreich worked at a series of minimally paid jobs.  She tells Anne Strainchamps that cleaning houses under deadline pressure was the worst job she had and that she was surprised to be both physically exhausted and mentally challenged by "menial" work.
