Work & Happiness

Special | 56m 46s

With the continuing debate over budget priorities and social programs, Work & Happiness: The Human Cost of Welfare 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.
