Half of the US Population is Poor

Even if we use the standards that the State has set, which are different from our standards, one in two Americans are poor or low income. Which is, I think, a staggering statistic, and something that people have no idea about. And so, connected to that, when we’re talking about the issue of homelessness, the average age of a homeless person in the United States is 9 years old. So it’s families with their children who are homeless. That’s the profile of who is homeless and who is poor.
