This chapter aims to hook the reader on the lives of poor workers. It begins with a description of the author's visit to high-tech China. It then narrates his own personal story on how he got to where he is today, starting with his experience with mass poverty in Kenya while a graduate student. The chapter concludes by asking the reader to put himself/herself in the shoes of the billions of people in the world who are working hard but working poor.
