Faces of Poverty

The Sound of Ideas

Poverty is the highest it's been in the United States since 1993. And the Census Bureau reports that more than one in seven Ohioans is poor, the highest rate for the state in three decades. Meanwhile, household incomes are dropping, even for those who manage to stay above the poverty line. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll look at poverty in Northeast Ohio and examine the impact on children and the elderly. Join us, Monday at 9am on The Sound of Ideas.

Guests

Joel Elvery, Assistant Professor of Urban Studies, Cleveland State University
