The game shows a monthly cycle of the low-income worker. We are asked to help him make decisions on his spending. Spending such as rent, car insurance, health insurance, and daily expenses, players are asked to make wise choices that will help him budget his spending while allowing some room for savings and remain employed. However, it is extremely difficult for a low-income worker to make ends meet. Once player has gone through the month, the game shows how much money is left is his bank account and reveals that rent is due the next day. The end of the game, there is a button that links to a donation page that gives players the opportunity to give $10 to those in need.
