Fast Food Women
POV Season 5
Feature Film | 08/10/1992

Women in Kentucky, as across the nation, are increasingly applying for jobs frying chicken, making pizzas and flipping burgers for fast food chains. They are not teenagers or college students on summer break. Indeed, they are struggling to support families in communities ravaged by a failing economy. duPont-Columbia Award winner Anne Lewis Johnson documents the low-wage, no-benefit jobs of the ‘working poor’ in America’s new ‘service economy.’
