Под водой: что гибнет семьи в Филадельфии

The American Dream is eroding in Philadelphia. 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 Philadelphia families will only change with large-scale action.

Политика, изложенная в последнем отчете PCCY, Underwater: What’s Sinking Families in Philadelphia”, должны быть реализованы, иначе цикл финансового стресса никогда не закончится. Дети в этих неблагополучных семьях станут следующим поколением неблагополучных семей. Американская мечта станет американской канализацией.
