Host: [before every episode Host says] Our goal is just to simply show the world a window as to why people do the thing they do, where that desperation comes from. It's like they say, when the system fails you, create your own system.

Great series
8 January 2020 | by NO_ID2020See all my reviews

08Jan2020 {7/10 stars = B} For poor audio. Some of the audio is distorted and static noise to disguise voices and some of the audio is distorted just because. The unnecessary distorted audio was irritating. Recommend? Yes

Showing everyday struggles of people trying to survive. Appalling how many people in this series say how much they want to work and earn money legally. Some in this series say there are no jobs in their area, I find that hard to believe. When people say there are no jobs what they mean is, there are no jobs where they can make large amounts of money quickly and easily. People that are used to making hundreds or thousands of dollars a day illegally without breaking a sweat are not motivated to go straight working for peanuts washing dishes, doing janitorial or other labor intensive jobs.

A person that really wants to earn honest money can do yard work and housekeeping for people in their neighborhood, babysitting, construction or labor jobs, network with other people to find odd jobs in the community to earn money legally.

CONTENT ADVISORY: Profanity, drug and alcohol use, gambling, theft, black market selling of illegal and stolen items. People committing illegal acts and trying to justify their illegal behavior.
