SF Living Wage Coalition Community Outreach Documentary (30 min)

Race To The Bottom (20 min.) by Jonathan King, Michael Hamm, and Daniela Rusnokova
Film about truck drivers working at the Port of Oakland, where over 2,000 independent truck drivers operate every day. The film gives us a look into the lives of the drivers, as told by three men. From inside of their cabs we learn about their struggles to earn a living wage, support their families, and stay healthy as they do their jobs, transporting goods in and out of the Port.
