One-third of American households can’t afford food, shelter or medical care

Recommended Posts

Nearly half of Americans have a tough time paying their bills, and over one-third have faced hardships such as running out of food, not being able to afford a place to live, or not having enough money to pay for medical treatment.

Those are some of the grim findings from the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s first-ever survey of financial well-being, released Tuesday.

The numbers parallel MarketWatch’s own State of the American Wallet dashboard, which tracks how Americans are faring financially with data that updates in real time.

I think that in this day and age there should be no hardship of any kind, greed, dog eat dog world we now live in.The ones that give the most are the ones that don't have.

I feel there is enough compassion to overcome this.........there is always hope,faith and love.

Blessings!:goodpost:

Probably the phones they have are given to them by the government. I don't know what kind they're passing out for free, though.
