It was a packed house for a meeting to talk about making ends meet in Nashville.

While Nashville's unemployment rate has been less than three percent, many people who call Music City home have been on government assistance or have a difficult time when it comes to money.

That's because many people have been working minimum wage jobs, which means while they are working, they still live in poverty.

The Co-Chair of Nashville Organized for Action and Hope, or NOAH, spoke to the group about minimum wage, small business owners, and many other things affecting poverty in Nashville.

An equality Equity Task Force with NOAH organized Sunday's event.
