This booknis a funny book about the not-so-funny world of work. Iain Levison is adrift in a worka-day world in which in human is an good as the next, and all humans are expendable. His is a wage slave - a genuine, salary-dependent, red-blooded working stiff too 'rich' for welfare and too broke to fit a consumer demographic. He can find work but not fulfillment. Instead he struggles just to feed and shelter himself, and keep his car running so he can get back and forth from his job.
To deal with the dead-end, dead-head labor that induces in him a pink-slip-payback attitude, Iain adopts a defense mechanism of deadpan humor, as the realization sets in that his college degree will gain him little by way of psychic wages (or any other kind).
