DHS Give Us Back Our Children

In 2010, Payday contributed to the production of a video exposing the unfair treatment of mothers by the US Department of Human Services (DHS), who very often has taken their children away because they were poor. In the words of Nancy Carroll from the Every Mother is a Working Mother Network : ‘They don’t want the family to keep the children because there is no money in it. If they take them out the home and put them with someone else there is money in it‘.
