What do you think of when you think of poverty?

I don’t know about you all, but when I think of poverty I typically think of poverty around the world — which means I forget that poverty in the US is still a huge issue that we need to overcome. I’m working on this, and saw this recent article from Oxfam on “How America’s War on Poverty is Changing”. Take the time to read it, and keep this sentence in mind from the very end of the article: “In the US today, millions of poor people are working full-time — or even more — but are still not earning enough to meet their basic needs.”
