Waging a Living (85 minutes)

Selected by ALA Video Round Table "Notable Videos for Adults" 2006; Silver Chris Award, Columbus International Film and Video Festival, 2005; Top Award, New Jersey International Film Festival, 2005.

One in four American workers - more than 30 million people - are stuck in jobs that pay less than the federal poverty level for a family of four. Roger Weisberg's alarming and heart-wrenching new documentary Waging a Living puts a human face on the growing economic squeeze that is forcing millions of workers into the ranks of the poor. Shot in the Northeast and California, the film profiles four very different Americans who work full-time but still can't make ends meet. Despite their hard work and determination, these four find themselves, as one of them observes, "hustling backwards." Contact Dr. Ron Wilhelm
