Synopsis

The American Dream used to include a white picket fence, 2.2 kids, and a dog. In todayÕs frantic world, itÕs . . . well, letÕs be honestÑitÕs quite different. But what would happen if you did have the nerve to quit your white-collar job? Prioleau Alexander can tell you: He walked away from a lucrative career as an advertising executive, seeking a life Òlike that dude on Kung Fu.Ó Over the next year he worked minimum-wage jobs as a pizza deliveryman, ice cream scooper, construction worker, ER tech, fast food jockey, and even cowboy on a Montana dude ranch. In YOU WANT FRIES WITH THAT?, Prioleau explores life at minimum wage and proves unequivocally that the grass is not always greener on the other side.
