New Labour pledged to make work pay but in the context of rising food and fuel prices this film asks just how possible it is for families to work their way out of poverty in the current climate. Care worker Carole from Essex is so worried about rising food prices, she’s started to stockpile food in freezers around the house. Brian and his family from Wigan were helped by working tax credits, but now find themselves back on the breadline since his triplet sons turned 16. And rising energy prices and council tax could be forcing Donna and her young family to move into shared accommodation in Clacton on Sea.
