This documentary series follows millennials as they navigate the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression. Each episode's distinct city serves as the backbone of the narrative analyzing each character's economic situations. Payday is ultimately a critical examination of a disillusioned generation who are highly educated and streetwise yet facing mounting debt, struggling to find decent jobs, and working to survive post-economic collapse.
