Economic Report: Four Year Increase in US Poverty

The images coming out of the gulf coast last week brought to the surface an invisible demographic in the United States: those living in poverty.Just days before the hurricane struck the US Census Bureau released their annual report showing that, for the fourth year in a row, poverty in the US incresed.
