Can the working poor get ahead? The film Poor No More tackles this question.

“Poor No More” is a feature documentary that offers Canada’s working poor a way out. Mary Walsh takes some hard-working Canadians to see how poverty has been reduced in Europe and how it might be reduced here. They discover that the countries with the least poverty have affordable housing, strong unions, free university and childcare — and enjoy successful economies. It’s a road movie with lots of tears and passion that will appeal to the millions of Canadians who are worrying about how to make ends meet.”  Excerpt from synopsis.

Poor No More was produced by Suzanne Babin and directed by Bert Deveaux and I really think this movie will appeal to a lot of you out there. We can all relate to working hard but still feeling like you’re barely making ends meet or are one pay cheque away from being in financial trouble.

It truly is getting harder and harder for people to get ahead in Canada and this film does a great job of addressing that. I hope you take the time to check it out (try your local library) and let me know what you think.
