Waging a Living chronicles the battle of four low-wage workers, striving to lift their families out of poverty.

Shot over a three-year period in the northeast and California, this observational documentary captures the dreams, frustrations and accomplishments of a diverse group of workers who live from paycheck to paycheck. By presenting an unvarnished look at the barriers that these workers must overcome to escape poverty, the film offers a sobering view of the elusive American Dream.
