#Wealth Distribution in the US

Income inequality and wealth distribution are still an enormous problem in the United States. The gap between the rich and poor has grown larger as generation X and Y have grown up. Children today are growing up with this consequences of this unseen gap, many born into a world where food stamps and social welfare programs are necessities for survival.

Minimum wages nationwide have been at a stagnant growth rate for years.

What does it mean for them to grow up so very poor? How did we get here? A lot of it has to do with corporate America’s refusal to provide a living wage. Unions have been working non-stop to empower workers in 2013 with a reasonable minimum wage and access to health benefits. It’s an uphill battle with such a gap between wealth and hardship.
