Skint is a documentary series that takes a look into the lives of a group of unemployed people living in Scunthorpe, north Lincolnshire. With no discipline to work, the lives looked at are those of people who have been unemployed for a long time. At the high point, the steelworks factory where they live had 27,000 people working for them. However, today only sixth of the number are employed.
The series is a mix of humor, energy and bluntness that it allows people to see into their lives and see what they have to go through. With a community that stands behind them, the people have little to desire. In this series, they allow people to see what life is like for the people affected.
