is designed to help people understand the challenges and trade-offs
faced by people with insecure employment. The “game” begins when you’ve
been unemployed, have only $1,000 left in your bank account, and need
to get a low wage job. This game helps us to better understand the many trade-offs that people are forced to make and the difficulty in making ends meet.
begin the game by securing a job. You will then be given the choice to
opt in for health insurance. The site then asks you to find a place to
live, choose between things your children need/want, buy groceries,
etc., and the game goes on.
See if you can make it through the month with money left!
