On August 3, 2016, I offered a ride to a woman walking along a road in Rand, West Virginia--just outside the capital Charleston. She was happy to open up about her circumstances and life in this community. But it wasn't pretty. In the end, I simply remembered that though I couldn't do much to help this woman, if we all helped a little--in whatever ways we can--communities like this can be improved.

“What is strange about what goes on in America is that we are the wealthiest country in the history of the world,” Sanders told more than 250 people at the Five Loaves & Two Fishes Food Bank. He pointed to mounting wealth and income inequality nationwide. In West Virginia, while the top 1 percent saw incomes rise more than 60 percent from 1979 to 2012, incomes for everyone else fell by 0.4 percent. He also said 22 percent of American children live in poverty, including about 100,000 in West Virginia. “What poverty is about is dealing with the stress of whether or not your family is going to make it every single week,” Sanders said. “When you don’t have any money you’re fighting for your survival every single day.” --------- ★ Join the political revolution at www.berniesanders.com ★ Co...

California Leads Nation in Poverty Guess which state has the highest poverty rate in the country?

That’s according to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure, which factors in the cost of housing, food, utilities and clothing, and which includes non cash government assistance as a form of income. Given robust job growth and the prosperity generated by several industries, it’s worth asking why California has fallen behind, especially when the state’s per capita GDP increased approximately twice as much as the U.S. average over the five years ending in 2016 (12.5%, compared with 6.27%). ... https://pjmedia.com/trending/whats-matter-california/ ===========================...
