Abstract:

"While poverty has traditionally been a problem only for the unemployed, a new demographic of Americans has emerged--the working poor. This program explores the disturbing realities that many people in low-wage jobs face every day--such as having to decide whether to pay the rent, buy groceries, or see a doctor. Viewers will learn how standards of living are often measured, how suburban areas have fostered a particular type of economic hardship, and how welfare-to-work programs have, at times, led to more resistant poverty. The film also draws connections between America's immigration challenges and the swelling numbers of working poor."--Container notes."--DVD case.
