Luke Shaefer: $2.00 a Day--Living on Almost Nothing in America
Host Marcus Smith talks to poverty researcher H. Luke Shaefer, coauthor with Kathryn J. Edin of the new book $2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America. $2.00 a Day details and explores the stories of real American families who have no choice but to fight every day for their literal survival; it also examines potential solutions to the problem of poverty in America—in particular, our need for an improved, more effective welfare system. —Original airdate: 3/20/2017
