"Hard Earned" From Kartemquin Films Premieres Sunday

Our friends at Kartemquin Films, the wonderful people behind "Hoop Dreams", "The Interrupters", and "Life Itself" sent over the brand new preview for their latest effort, "Hard Earned", which premieres on Al Jazeera America on Sunday May 3rd at 10pm EST. 

The official synopsis:

“Hard Earned,” produced by the Emmy and Peabody-winning documentary production team behind films such as “Hoop Dreams,” “The Interrupters,” “The Trials of Muhammad Ali,” and “Life Itself,” is a provocative and in-depth look at the lives of five working-class American families.

In six one-hour episodes, Al Jazeera America follows the families both at work and at home, as they juggle the rising costs of housing, education, food, medical bills and more – all while working low-wage jobs. As widening economic inequality and the wealth gap continue to increase in the U.S., can these lower-income families get ahead? How are wage stagnation, student loan debt and demographic shifts in the workforce contributing to financial instability for many Americans?
