Description: The popular view of the poor today is of alienated minorities living in big-city ghettos, isolated from the cultural mainstream, deviant in values and family structure, criminally inclined and permanently dependent on government handouts. This is the nightmare image of an underclass of single black mothers ("welfare queens") and deadbeat fathers who have no desire to work, supported by the tax dollars levied on the hard-working middle class through the programs of "big government".

"No Shame In My Game" presents an entirely different view of inner-city poverty. For two years, Dr. Newman and her graduate assistants followed workers at four fast food restaurants in Harlem, going from work to school to the streets to their homes. The complex picture that emerged from these interviews and observations little resembled the "welfare society" of political rhetoric. Instead, they found a community of hard-working people, struggling to support themselves and their families on minimum-wage, dead-end jobs. They continue to pursue their goals and preserve their families in the midst of disintegrating neighborhoods.
