Ever wonder what it really takes for a person to bring his or her family out of poverty? Ever ponder why a low-income kid in your city doesn’t just study harder? Why the cashier at the drugstore doesn’t go to school at night to qualify for a higher-paying career? Why low-wage jobs are often hard to fill?
This past year, we’ve been asking low-income adults what challenge or opportunity they’re facing and what it would take for them to overcome it and continue on towards their goals. In the process, we’ve learned a great deal about what Americans in need need to help them move forward towards stability.
This Core Conversation will use the videos and writings of low-income American adults to touch off conversations illuminating and exploring five (sometimes counterintuitive) lessons we can learn from the real experiences of low-income families.
