Abstract:

Millions of Americans struggle with poverty every day. The United States prides itself on being the land of opportunity, yet many disagree about why so many Americans have struggled to meet their basic needs. This book looks at the challenges surrounding poverty in America today, and explores the legal, political, social, and economic solutions, including food stamps, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, that have been proposed to remedy the problem. Readers will gain an in-depth understanding of the many factors causing poverty and of how governments and communities can do their part to help those in need. Full-color images and sidebars support this compelling narrative.
