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.


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.

This off-beat and often uplifting series of specials looks with uncommon humor and grace at a wide-ranging and vivid group of real people.

PBS' Livelyhood series is full of hope. One of the most inspiring hours of television this year.
--Aaron Barnhart, The Kansas City Star

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 work.

AWESOME Show! ... great production, stories, etc. Just a really unexpected treasure to find on TV. The educational value alone is tremendous. Keep up the great work.
