Obvious poverty: America's homeless( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stereotypes tell us it's easy to spot the homeless -- after all, life on the street tends to leave a mark on people. But is a "homeless profile" really meaningful? In today's economy a man in a business suit might well be living in his car; and besides, to those in society's upper echelons, homelessness is often invisible. This program offers a profound exploration of homelessness, focusing on factors like addiction, financial hardship, mental illness, domestic abuse, and the inability to transcend a criminal background. It also outlines methods for combating homelessness in communities and in American society. Interviews with homeless people bring a real-world understanding to the issues, shedding light on the job search frustrations, bureaucratic challenges, and lack of personal safety that go hand-in-hand with a shelterless existence.

The nouveau poor : a look at immigrant poverty( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "golden door" exalted at the Statue of Liberty still beckons the world's poor. Once inside the U.S., however, most immigrants accept a lifestyle that is anything but glittering. This program reveals the conditions in which an American newcomer, legal or not, struggles to earn a living, save money, and meet basic needs. Featuring interviews with numerous immigrants from Latin America and Africa, the film illustrates their experiences with entrenched racism, unfairly low wages, the lack of a social safety net, few if any economic resources, and crowded, substandard housing. These individuals also describe the goals that drive them-education and a better future for their loved ones-and the equally important work ethic with which the majority of immigrants approach their jobs. Several scholars contribute their expertise as we. A part of the series Poverty in America
