DESCRIPTION: (from Sundance's press release, June 2012) It's no secret that getting, and keeping, a job in this economy takes more than just luck. After enough rejection, it's easy to feel entirely locked out of the game. Right now there are millions of Americans out of work, and this August, Sundance Channel's original docu-series "Get to Work" will take you inside a groundbreaking back-to-work program in San Diego, a hardcore boot camp that gives hope to the chronically unemployed: those who have no jobs, no direction, and seemingly no chance. It's a high-stakes make-or-break moment and, for most of the students, this is their last crack at a real future. But it doesn't come easy; as they push their students to learn workplace skills that will land them a job, the Instructors contend with those who have never learned anything other than bad attitudes and bad behavior. Not everyone makes it to graduation.
