In today's changing economy, many people find that they do not have the skills to secure jobs. Others -- like small farmers -- find that it is getting harder to earn enough money to support their families. Poverty and homelessness affect a growing number of people.

Celebrities profiled include among others Jimmy Carter, Richard Dreyfus, Billy Mills, Bruce Springsteen, Jeff Bridges, Dennis Byrd, Whoopi Goldberg, Sharon Stone, Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, and Neil Young.
