The Poverty Trap

Millions of people are angry. They’re angry because they are working harder, but have less
and less to show for it. In previous generations, millions moved up in class in America through hard work and diligence.

But today, the American middle class is disappearing. And America ranks near the bottom of industrialized nations, in upward mobility. Trapping millions of Americans in permanent cycles of poverty. Where they sit, waiting for some “lucky break”or a lottery ticket to free them. Millions of other highly skilled Americans are under appreciated, and stuck in low paying dead end jobs.

Others, are living from paycheck to paycheck in their efforts to maintain a middle class lifestyle. Occupations that used to pay a living wage, now pay of pittance of what they used to pay.
