    schema:reviewBody ""This book is about poor women, many of them single mothers, Aboriginal, or both, who have defied the odds to become apprenticing carpenters. To do so they have juggled child-care schedules, left abusive partners, and kicked drug habits to participate to a unique intensive retraining program. Through the voices of the women participants and their instructors, Little analyzes the program to reveal the struggles and triumphs of low-income women. She demonstrates that there is a desperate need for retraining programs that provide real opportunities for economic independence. She also argues that in an era of workfare and time-limited welfare, such programs are an effective strategy for welfare reform."--Jacket." ;
