>From Films for the Humanities:

ON THE EDGE: AMERICA'S WORKING POOR =A9 2004: Segment one of this ABC News
program profiles a family of four whose combined income is $18,000 a year.
Segments two and three present the stories of two single mothers who,
strapped for cash, were hurt by loan deals they hoped would help them: a ta=
x
refund loan for one, a payday loan for the other.

VOICES OF DISPOSABLE PEOPLE =A9 2003: More than 300 million men, women, and
children are being forced to work in conditions of virtual enslavement. Thi=
s
program goes around the world to document the stories of disposable people:
sugarcane cutters in the Dominican Republic, bonded laborers in India, and
migrant workers in Miami, U.S.A

BILL MOYERS: A QUESTION OF FAIRNESS =A9 2003: The middle class shrinks as the
gap between rich and poor widens. Bill Moyers investigates what lies behind
the disparity. In three examples, he draws attention to a question of
fairness involving the politics of privilege: the impact of NAFTA on a
Pennsylvania mill town; financial deregulation in the early 1990s that led
to WorldCom=B9s scandalous collapse; and the story of a failed attempt to
reform Alabama=B9s state income tax system.
