The Poor in America: Friends and Neighbors in the Heartland
For some people, our economy may be turning around, but millions of families are at risk of going hungry, in one of the richest nations on earth. The poorest people in America are those who are the first to feel the downturn, and will be the last to feel the country’s financial recovery. The hardworking poor in America’s heartland, with their long and deep traditions in mining, manufacturing and military service, are increasingly seen in food pantry lines, feeling ashamed and angry. Their stories and images push beyond stereotypes and reveal a hidden America of families living in poverty, which is both surprising and haunting.
