Better than 90% is Not Enough!

The US poverty threshold for a family of four is approximately $22,000 a year.

Earning $22,000 a year places you in the top 10% of households worldwide.

Seems like a disconnect to me!

The US poverty threshold is much lower than what allows people to receive public assistance of some kind or another. In our area, a family of four can qualify for help with utilities, health care (of course this will be changing), and food, if they make less than $45,000 a year.


$45K !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...and it's not enough!
