Please try again later. Poverty has been with us since the founding of the country, and most likely will always exist to some extent.
The question we need to ask ourselves what level of poverty are we willing to tolerate? This book examines poverty in America today and what possible changes could eliminate the worst poverty that we find.
Either you find a place to sleep with friends, relatives or you spend time in a shelter until you are not allowed to stay any longer.
Imagine, to, that you want to work, but due to physical ailments or lack of work you are unable to get, and keep a job.
That is happening in America today and to me, it is unacceptable. The authors looked to find families in these straights and, surprisingly to the authors, they had little trouble finding people living under such conditions.
The book evaluates the lives a a number of these families in several parts of the country, and then examines ways that the situation could be minimized, if not eliminated.
The authors do not advocate returning to the cash welfare model that existed until the mid s, but rather improve the systems we have today.
For example, cash assistance is still available to the truly needy, but Washington gave this assistance to states as block grants, allowing them wide latitude over how the money would be spent.
The authors advocate for the levels of money stay the same, but changing the rules and making the states use the money for its intended purpose.
The book is interesting and eye opening. Who would have thought that one of the most prosperous nations on earth could have such poverty levels right under our noses.
I was disappointed that the authors chose to examine families only to the east of the Mississippi River, as there is poverty here in California that rivals and may even exceed that found in the east.
By removing the west coast, it made it seem like all the poverty was located in eastern states. A recommended read for all.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is one of those books that is not an easy read. I mean the subject.
The writing drew me in and the stories kept me reading. I cried for the harshness of the world as I read things I never thought about before.
It never dawned on me that house cleaners would have to haul their own water to derelict houses to clean because the water was turned off.
I never thought about what you do when there is only so much money for gas and your roommate uses all of it, leaving you unable to drive to work.
This book is very well written and very well researched. It is one I will keep and look back on when I feel that my life is tough, because my life is not as tough as the people cameoed in the book.
It also made me think to the time I spent living in the Bronx during grad school yes! My neighbors would occasionally see me out reading on my stoop -- not making dinner --, and one family in particular paid special attention: I knew that they did not have much, but of course to refuse the meal would be rude and besides, the food was hearty and delicious.
Since meeting them, I have had a soft spot for the supposed "lazy" people who get government subsidies. Some, like the family I knew, made do fairly well with what they had.
In fact, we now spend much more" struck me in particular, and signals that the very readership the book probably targets are also probably the most able and willing to address the problems.
While the book sometimes veers into moderately-lengthy analyses of government policies, which might tire some readers, I feel that it presents a good mixture between these and the case studies showing these policies "at work," so to speak.
