Journalist, activist and author
Kinne recently published On Sale: Employers Get Good Workers Dirt Cheap. Five years ago she left the newspaper where she had worked for most of her 21-year career in journalism. Her timing couldn’t have been better…or worse. The Great Recession began six months later. She rode out the recession, and the years after, as a low-paid sales associate and cashier at a chain store. On Sale: Employers Get Good Workers Dirt Cheap is her first book, a memoir of her four years at the store she calls Big Box.
