Wages of Work

December 15 at 4:00 p.m.
West Building Lecture Hall  

There are endless ways in which people approach issues surrounding job opportunities, occupations, wages, unemployment, and underemployment. Wages of Work puts a spotlight on the various lives under the restraints or freedoms of these topics, and includes shorts such as Visual Communication’s Wataridori: Birds of Passage (1974), which explores the legacy of first-generation Japanese Americans, and Los Trabajadores (2002), by Scribe and CATA (El Comite de Apoyo a Los Trabajadores Agricolas), which tells the day-to-day experiences of mushroom-farm laborers in Pennsylvania. (Total running time approximately 93 minutes)
