Barely Getting By: Stories of America's Working Poor
Barely Getting By: Stories of America's Working Poor

Listen
AIR DATE: September 14, 2010

We hear stories of America's thirty million working poor in this Humankind Labor Day special. What's it like for people in low-paying full-time jobs, with no savings, behind on their bills, sometimes lining up at food pantries, even shelters? We meet a single mom, raising five children while working two jobs, who got sick trying to advance her education, and the story of a full-time worker in his sixties who has no savings. We also learn how global trends affect America's low-wage workers.
