My Reality, My Truth (Lisa Hayes)

I shot this video Tuesday, October 23, 2012. While working on an assignment that dealt with the topic of the working poor. Talking to Lisa made me get my camera and record her perspective on the working poor topic. Lisa’s perspective and thoughts was very powerful.  Today, millions of smart, hard working Americans are flipping burgers, waiting tables or working dead end retail jobs not because they want to, but because they have no other options.

Those are the lucky ones.
