What it's like to live on six dollars a day? That's for food, gas, toothpaste, health care - everything! That's how much you'd have - as a single person - if you lived at the federal poverty level.

Dry cereal with no milk at every meal. Finding yourself tempting to steal your roommate's toilet paper because it frees up two precious dollars for food.

Listen to the experiences of a single woman and a family man who voluntarily live at the federal poverty level for 3 weeks. Very illuminating.
