Nomadland by Jessica Bruder. From the beet fields of North Dakota to the National Forest campgrounds of California, employers have discovered a new, low-cost labor pool: transient older Americans. Finding that social security comes up short and often underwater on their home mortgages, these invisible casualties of the Great Recession have taken to the road by the tens of thousands in late-model RVs, travel trailers, and vans, forming a growing community of nomads: migrant laborers who call themselves “workampers.” Copies are available at the Adult Desk.Vernon Area Public Library District
