Description

According to the article, "Most Americans don't realize...that poverty rates are higher outside metropolitan areas than inside, and that rural poverty is worsening even as the nation's economy thrives. While median household income rose nationwide in 1996 for the second-straight year, the ranks of the rural poor grew to 8.3 million, or 15.9% of those living outside urban areas; in metro areas, it is now about 13.2%." This story includes information about the welfare system, and the lower-class people of America.
