Movie Info

Compelling, and sometimes heartbreaking, "Waging a Living" chronicles the frustrating lives of four low-wage earners over three years. Included: a nursing assistant who supports three children as well as the kids of her oldest daughter, who has thyroid cancer; a security guard with $10 in his savings account; a waitress going through a divorce; and a child-care supervisor whose increased job earnings result in a drop in her standard of living as her government assistance is decreased.

The intent of Waging a Living is to inspire outrage, and to an extent it succeeds.

Doing the math in hopes of gaining on the American Dream is becoming less like arithmetic and more like some advanced course in magical calculus.

January 6, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4

Through sensitive, in-depth profiles of four workers, Weisberg drives home the point that hard-working men and women with full-time jobs find themselves and their families trapped in a seemingly endless cycle of poverty.

One comes away not quite knowing what Weisberg wants to say with his occasional statistics laid over loosely edited, perfunctory video footage.

It makes it points subtly and intelligently.

Weisberg is nonjudgmental, allowing his subjects to deliver the message that, for far too many people, the American dream is more of a nightmare.
