A hidden camera tracks people who perform the worst paid jobs.

Journalist Saša Uhlová decided to take a look at the prevailing conditions in some of the worst-paid jobs: at a laundry, poultry slaughterhouse, razor factory, supermarket and garbage-sorting center, places where people usually work seven days a week, sometimes overtime as well, and without meal breaks. Uhlová spent about a month at each of these places, filming her work and her surroundings with a hidden camera. Speaking with her co-workers, she discovers that poverty (a public transport pass is very often an unattainable luxury) is just one of the problems facing the worst-paid employees.
