PlaySpent Opening Question

The online simulation, PlaySpent, helps people understand the challenges faced by those living in poverty. At the beginning of the simulation, you’re unemployed and have only $1,000 left in your bank account. You need to get a low wage job and attend to life’s necessities—food, shelter, childcare, medical fees. The simulation is a useful reminder of the difficulties encountered by the working poor, and is an especially good teaching tool. Go try PlaySpent yourself by clicking here.
