Waging a Living

Is the American Dream still alive? More than 30 million Americans – one in four workers – are stuck in low wage jobs that do not provide the basics for a decent life. This verite documentary captures the dreams, frustrations, and accomplishments of a diverse group of workers who struggle to live from paycheck to paycheck. WAGING A LIVING presents an unvarnished look at the barriers that these workers must overcome to escape poverty, and offers a sobering view of the elusive American Dream.
