This can really go a long way of making service workers feel valued.Other than her time in the survival jobs trenches, Tirado writes about her experiences as a wife and mother of two children.
Tirado’s husband is a former member of the military.Not surprisingly, it is the poor people’s sex lives that are the most scrutinized the most.Sure, some Wall Street titan can frequent high-priced call girls and a millionaire rock star can bang a bunch of groupies, but Heaven forbid someone who isn’t flush with cash enjoy a little horizontal sweaty.She also admits to being estranged from her family for a while.Tirado has always worked, often working more than one job at a time.To these conservatives and liberals, Linda Tirado would probably like to say, “Fuck you.” In Hand to Mouth, Tirado doesn’t claim to speak for every other poor person out there.
However, she does speak and boy, does she have a story to tell. Her family was middle class and she even attended a pricy boarding school on scholarship.
They did not have children to get more benefits; they had their children because they desired to have children, just like any well-to-do couple.

They included being harassed by upper management, denied raises and promotions unless they provided sexual favors, having to ask permission to go use the bathroom and having their bags and purses searched for any stolen goods they may want to take home. So much for the no work ethic the poor are supposed to have.
Tirado knows fully well how bad smoking is for her health and her wallet, But sometimes a quick drag on a cigarette is what gave Tirado an extra bolt of energy to keep on working.
