Notes From The Underground
Older but great piece from NYT, all about just how easy it is to slip a few rungs down to economic ladder and into poverty. That goes for everyone, whether you work at Costco or your a college professor, all it takes is a company downsize, a battle with Leukemia, a mistake, to realize just how everything can "rest on foundations of sand"1.
NYT "America's 'Near Poor' Are Increasingly at Economic Risk, Experts Say"
