USA: Being Poor in the World's Richest Country

Available on Prime Video
43 million people in the United States live below the poverty line, twice as many as it was fifty years ago. 1.5 million children are homeless, three times more than during the Great Depression. Entire families are tossed from one place to another to work unstable jobs that barely allow them to survive. In the historically poor Appalachian mining region, people rely on food stamps for food.
