The Night Shift
In an increasingly round-the-clock economy, we can have online groceries delivered before breakfast, get a tan at midnight, and drop kids off at a 24-hour daycare. Who works the dawn to dusk jobs that make all this possible? Livelyhood finds out.
THE LIVELYHOOD SERIES
LIVELYHOOD is more than just great television!
This eight part series of PBS specials are designed to encourage a dialogue in classrooms, boardrooms, lunchrooms, and libraries about how companies, communities, and co-workers can find new ways to cope with the rapidly changing workplace. These videos are brought to you by The Working Group.

and often uplifting series of specials looks with uncommon humor and grace at a wide-ranging
and vivid group of real people.
series is full of hope. One of the most inspiring hours of television this year.
I teach high
school Home Economics. My program includes career preparation, and in Texas we have
a single semester called Family and Career Management. The Working Family Values
show is perfect. I wish I had a new class starting tomorrow.
I caught a couple
of the shows--on the work ethic and on employee ownership--and thought they were
great. Interesting, entertaining, informative, and provocative, I decided to show
them to my classes at UC Davis. They loved them too! Thanks and keep up the good
... great production, stories, etc. Just a really unexpected treasure to find on
TV. The educational value alone is tremendous. Keep up the great work.
