Michael Yates ... retired from his job as professor of economics at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown in 2001 and “hit the road,” where he has become something of a Marxist Jack Kerouac. He and his wife Karen Korenoski gave away most of their possessions, packed the rest in their van, and moved to Yellowstone National Park where Michael worked as a hotel desk clerk and Karen as a restaurant host. From there they went to Manhattan where Michael worked at the Monthly Review office. Then on to Portland, Oregon, Miami Beach, Florida, and Estes Park, Colorado. In between the last two moves they lived on the road for 150 and 120 days respectively, staying in cheap motels and cooking their meals on a two-burner hot plate. And since August 31, 2006, they have been on the road again.

I really respect Mike Yates. One of the best introductory guides to trade unions, Why Unions Matter, was written by him.
