A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Film Showing & Discussion
"Waging A Living"

With discussion of the current economic crisis and how people can fight for real solutions.

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. “Waging A Living” chronicles the battle of four low-wage workers to lift their families out of poverty. Shot over a three-year period in the northeast and California, this documentary captures the dreams, frustrations, and accomplishments of a diverse group of workers who struggle to live from paycheck to paycheck. By presenting an unvarnished look at the barriers that these workers must overcome to escape poverty, “Waging A Living” offers a sobering view of the elusive “American Dream”.

This film gives an important perspective on the current economic crisis by showing how the system fails millions of workers even in times when the economy is booming. 2005, 85 min.
