REPORT: Underwater: What’s Sinking Families in Bucks County – Apr 2019

The American Dream is eroding in Bucks County. Incomes that used to provide a comfortable middle class life are no longer enough to even cover the basics. Even families who are near the median income – an income that should solidify their middle class status – are drowning.

The parents in these struggling families bank on the hope that their children can move up the economic ladder, becoming more prosperous as adults than they, the parents, were.  The bleak situation facing Bucks County families will only change with large-scale action.

السياسات الواردة في تقرير PCCY الأخير ، “Underwater: What’s Sinking Families in Bucks County”، يجب تنفيذها ، وإلا فإن دورة الضغوط المالية لن تنتهي أبدًا. سيصبح الأطفال في هذه العائلات المتعثرة الجيل القادم من العائلات المتعثرة. الحلم الأمريكي سيصبح المصفاة الأمريكية.
