Comment:I had the privilegde to write my final Essay on this subject last year. I did a lot of research and you wont believe all the information I found out. Your article is very good and the poverty rate has most likely increased. I have not seen any new stats as of yet.

Comment:sean from ca needs to think about how he would like to work two or more jobs from morning til night. what about the kids in these families. and poverty stricken people are not stupid or untalented, just as all middle to upper class people are not smart and wonderfully talented. thanx.

Comment:The article has great stats. but I would like to comment on another comment by Sean from California. I was wondering if he has lived and grown up in a poverty stricken area? If so he would understand that we must not blame the poor for being poor, we are only blaming the victim. He must understand that their lives are more of a cycle. It all starts with the poor (lack) of education thousands recieve as children and adolescents. Also if your is school is good or bad all depends on property taxes(Beverly Hills=great schools, after school programs, and tutoring for SATS, while Compton=bad schools, no after school programs, and no tutoring because of its budget cuts). Some do drop out of school to be able to get a job to help pay bills upon bills that their familys have to deal with. But lets say they don't drop out and they wish to go to college, they usually would get lower SAT scores because of the poor education they recieved in highschool. Its a disadvantage people get when they are raised in poor areas.So this would lead to jobs, don't be confused, thousands of poverty stricken persons have jobs ( most of the time two jobs). The reason they are still poor is because they have lowpaying jobs, and meritocracy is a myth. Many work all from sunrise to sunset, yet they cannot get out of the same poor area. So the cycle continues, that is why we can't blame America's victim, the poor, because it is not them who have to "get up and get a job" because they already do have them. We have to point the direction at those who have set up this cycle to keep the poor, poor and the wealthy, very wealthy.
