Work & Happiness

With so much focus on the new administration in Washington and the continuing debate over budget priorities and social programs, Work & Happiness: The Human Cost of Welfare is an interesting and provocative documentary that takes what some might feel is a controversial position: that it is the welfare system itself that keeps some people in a cycle of joblessness and poverty.

The film was independently funded and produced by the non-profit organization, Free to Choose Media.

Chasing the Dream is distributing it to major market PBS member stations and to audiences via the web, in an effort to underscore our commitment to exploring ALL points of view in this often-contentious debate.
