Poverty in the USA


This video is called American ECONOMIC CRISIS: POVERTY at a all time HIGH, the American DREAM is in THREAT.

By Kate Randall in the USA:

Nearly 50 million living in poverty in US

16 November 2012

The ranks of the unemployed in the United States rose last year to 49.7 million, based on a new measure that provides a fuller picture of poverty than that previously reported by U.S. Census Bureau data. The revised poverty rate of 16.1 percent is up more than a percentage point from the 15 percent figure reported by the government in September.

Coming a little more than a week after the 2012 elections, the news that nearly one in six Americans is living in poverty received little attention in the media or from the Obama administration. Neither big-business party has any policies to alleviate growing poverty, which is exacerbated by entrenched unemployment and a sluggish economy.

  1. So sad.., and very frustrating.
    Interesting video and very true facts. Many people are paycheck to paycheck, or no paycheck.
    Look around, and you do see poverty on every other corner. We can help over and over again, but need to fix the problem.
