The Working Poor

The working poor, a vast but under-recognized segment of society, labor tirelessly yet still struggle to make ends meet. Despite working long hours and often holding multiple jobs, their earnings hover around or below the poverty line. Financial stability eludes them as they face difficulties affording basic necessities like housing, healthcare, and nutritious food. Their lives are a constant juggling act, balancing work, family responsibilities, and the burden of living paycheck to paycheck. The working poor embody the disparity between work ethic and economic reality, highlighting the need for policies that bridge the gap between labor and financial well-being.
