The Cycle of Poverty Spins Faster | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

The Cycle of Poverty Spins Faster

Things have changed. For the worse. A single person earning a low wage cannot support him or herself, let alone a couple of kids. You’d never know it based on government statistics that now quote income averages based on family income, not worker income, as was once the case. If a family earns $40,000 a year because both parents are working at minimum wage in one or more jobs each and their teen has a paper route, that does not accurately reflect the state of the American worker.

As I write this, Walmart has announced that it will no longer provide health insurance to employees who work fewer than thirty hours, joining Target, Home Depot, Walgreens and Trader Joe’s in cutting hours and offering more part-time work in order to avoid the January 15 mandate.
