Question 2: Read the article and choose the correct answer.(2.5 pts):

30 DAYS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE

Could you change your life in just 30 days? That’s the question documentary maker Morgan Spurlock asked when he filmed his new TV series, 30 Days. Martin Grady reviews the first program of the series,

30 Days on the Minimum Wage*.
Spurlock, who is most famous for Supersize Me, his movie about the dangers of eating junk food, became frustrated that few people know about poverty in America. He and his fiancée, Alex, decided to film an experiment. They’d give up their jobs for a month and try to live on the
minimum wage. The resulting documentary, which was filmed reality-show-style using a handheld camera, contains a powerful social message about the growing gap between the rich and poor in the US.

The couple travel to Columbus, Ohio, one of the poorest cities in the US. The only apartment that they can afford to rent is filthy, in a dangerous area, and has no furniture. The heat doesn’t work very well, so they’re often cold. Alex begins working as a dishwasher, while Morgan does
construction work with no safety equipment. Neither of them earns more than the minimum wage.

It’s difficult to watch Morgan and Alex struggling in such terrible conditions. A charity gives them some furniture for free, but they have to live without reliable heat, TV, or telephone. They’re exhausted all the time and begin to argue about money. The couple interview people in the same situation and listen to their stories. It’s difficult to imagine, but these people have lived on the minimum wage for decades and many have children.

When Alex gets sick and Morgan badly injures his wrist, they go to a free clinic but can’t see a doctor because of long lines. People there say that without free medical care they’d die.

After 30 days, Morgan and Alex have spent over $1,000 more than they have earned, mostly because of the medical expenses. They are shocked. They can go back to their comfortable life in New York, but what if they couldn’t? How would they continue to survive?

*At the time of Morgan and Alex’s experiment, minimum wage in the US was $5.15 an hour.

Example: Morgan Spurlock wanted to discover _____.

A. how life changes in 30 days #

B. if you could change your life in 30 days #

C. if he could live on the minimum wage

1. 30 Days on the Minimum Wage is _____.

3. Morgan Spurlock is _____.

A. single # B. married # C. engaged #




4. The purpose of the experiment was to discover if Morgan

and Alex could _____.



A. give up their jobs B. make a movie together C. live on very little money

5. Morgan and Alex interviewed people _____.

A. and told them their life story # B. who were living in the same way #

10. Morgan and Alex weren’t able to see a doctor at the free clinic because _____.

HUNGRY POP STARS

Valerie Jones runs a company called Peanuts whose job is to look after pop stars and pop groups when they go on tour. She is the person who feeds the stars and she’s been doing it for the past ten years.

When the stars are playing at a festival, Valerie may have to cook for up to a thousand people which includes all the crew and the people who work backstage. She erects a marquee-a huge tent-and the food is served buffet style from a central serving area. She has to cater for different tastes, so there are normally four or more choices of menu. She also has to look after people who may be on special diet or some singers don’t eat dairy food before a concert.

She drives an enormous truck full of kitchen equipment and hires at least three walk-in refrigerators, a dishwashing unit and portable cabins which act as storerooms and office.

All the bands have to queue up to be served and everyone has to have a meal ticket. The stars are usually more relaxed when they are eating as no one is bothering them for autographs, although Valerie says that sometimes the security men and the stars’ managers are more trouble than the stars themselves.

There are certain things which she always has to keep in stock like herbal teas and her own particular mixture of honey, lemon and ginger which singers like to keep in flasks on stage with them when they are singing. Years ago bands used to drink quite a lot of alcohol, but these days they’re much healthier. Most bands drink fresh fruit juice and prefer to eat salads.

A lot of people in the bands are quite young and they’re not used to very expensive food, so Valerie prepares plain food unless a band sends her a “rider”. This is a list of special requirements. When people are tired, unwell or homesick they like to have familiar” comfort” food so she keeps a stock of people’s requirements just in case. As a result of all this Valerie says she has become an expert shopper and in less than an hour in a supermarket she can spend £1000.

A lot of bands won’t eat before a concert because they’re too nervous, so Valerie and her staff can end up working very long hours as they have to be around to provide what people want at two or three in the morning. One thing Valerie has noticed is that the more mad a band is on stage, the more normal they are when they are off it. She says she is amazed at the change in behaviour. A really wild singer can turn out to be really quiet and polite off stage.

A. the bands really rely on a special recipe B. the bands like to drink alcohol
