"The Struggle Is Not Real"

The “struggle” is not real: From tiny houses to my own lunch, poverty chic commodifies working-class life

The linguistic fetishization of hardship is one more way we appropriate from — and erase — people like my family


This author is too friendly in my book to the wealthy people who show off slumming it as poor. Just watch Tiny House Nation and watch the well-off set cry about having to live in less then 3,000 square feet. My biggest apartment as an adult is the one I live in now at 830 square feet. Most poor people don't have fancy faucets on their kitchen sink and tiles in the bathroom like those so called "tiny-houses". --The Sqauwker
