Section 1 Due 3/19
Section 2 Due 3/18

1) Write a one page reflection about Waging a Living based on the conversation that we had in the fishbowl about the documentary and what recommendations or advice you would give to them according the following quotes:

Jean said, “I’ve worked hard my whole life and I’m still stuck. Things have
changed somewhere along the line and I feel cheated out of the American dream.
I just don’t get ahead. There is no American dream anymore.” Jerry also talked
about the American dream. “My dreams will come true if I work hard enough for
them. But it's just some people's dreams get torn down.”
What would you say to Jean or Jerry who are clearly working hard, but are far
from achieving their dreams? In your view, what should they do differently? Or,
what should the community (employers, labor leaders, and community
stakeholders) do differently to enable low-wage workers to get ahead?
