Nickel and Dimed opens with Barbara Ehrenreich , a writer and journalist from Key West, Florida, at a lunch with her editor discussing pitches and article ideas. She speculates what it would be like to actually try to live on the minimum wage, and says that some enterprising journalist should try to do it—not thinking that the editor will say it should be her. Barbara grew up in a relatively comfortable environment, but all the previous generations of her family were working-class miners, and poverty has been close enough to her that she clings gratefully to her comfortable, flexible writing job. She recognizes that her task will hardly approximate the real-life experience of a poor person, since she is healthy, has no children in tow, and is only doing this experiment temporarily. She is trying merely to see if she can achieve an equilibrium between income and expenses. Barbara starts in Key West.
