Get By: the Living Wage Film (28 minutes) A look at two recycling workers, Stanley and Milton, as they bring their struggle for a living wage to the legislature, media, and the streets of Ithaca, New York. An exploration of worker-community solidarity and urban democracy, the film raises key questions about the value of increasingly privatized work, and the challenges of organizing across divides of race and class (27 min). 


World Premiere: A Day’s Work (60 min-2015) 90 minutes before he was killed on his first day of work as a temporary employee, 21-year-old Day Davis texted a picture of himself to his girlfriend, excited for their future.  Now Day's sister, 17-year-old Antonia, searches for answers. An investigation reveals the issues that led to Day's death and how the $100 billion temporary staffing industry is putting millions of American workers at risk.
