Not enough realistic
23 December 2015 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

They can't do real lives of those who gets by on minimum wage completely. There some people who get by on minimum wage with their children. Lives of these people were more severe than this movie. Because of some accidents, lives of the couple in this movie were not easy to live. Therefore, we, viewer, can know how severe to get by on minimum wage is. Of course, this point is important, but I don't think this movie shows real life on minimum wage. In addition, I think there are little thing that they want to show, so I don't understand why they make this documentary movie. The biggest problem in their 30days was the cost of medical care, so the important point in their lives is insurance. Nowadays, also insurance is one of the biggest problem in America, so they should have focused on this problem. If insurance, social service, and social security service are enough, those who get by on minimum wage are OK.
