The High Cost of Being Poor

Monday, June 16, 2008
The High Cost of Being Poor

Who would have thought that being poor would be expensive? It's true, from picking up toothpaste to getting checks cashed to purchasing home mortgages, residents of low-income neighborhoods are paying more on average for the same goods and services than those living in high income parts of town. What causes this phenomenon to occur? How does this problem weigh on the shoulders of those struggling to climb out of lower income areas, particularly single women and mothers? And how should the needs of these citizens and families be addressed? Join us this Monday as we discuss the High Cost of Being Poor. Because this is an archived edition we will not be taking calls.
