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.
