Low Wage America, Plight of the Working Poor.

        

Low Wage America, Plight of the Working Poor.

Logo for Low Wage America, Plight of the Working Poor.
This website is from National Public Radio (NPR). It chronicles a report by Noah Adams who spent a day with Laressa Matthew who operates a day care center out of her home's basement in Baltimore. She works 13 hours a day and cares for eight children ages 1-12. She is a low wage worker with no health insurance, no savings, and no safety net. I use this peace for discussion about poverty and the plight of many working poor.
