Edin and Shaefer's book a call to action for Americans to deal with poverty

an In The Media Reference

"Take a hard look at what it means to be poor in America, and ask how to help" - Washington Post. 10/30/2015.

This piece uses Kathryn Edin's and Luke Shaefer's book *$2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America* to posit that the dire circumstances of Americans living in extreme poverty can only be solved by new infusions of public and private support - including the availability of living-wage jobs and affordable housing.
