Episode 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.
