Waging a Living: Living Wage v. Minimum Wage: What's the Difference?

Streaming icon

POV collaborated with PBS Teachers and Dr. Faith Rogow to produce a lesson plan for teachers interested in Waging a Living as a teaching tool for the high school subject areas of Economics, Civics, Life Skills, U.S. History and Business. This resource group is designed to help students get a better handle on the reality of daily expenses for an adult, and to demonstrate that what they may see as a good wage is barely adequate for some people trying to live on their own.
