Summary
Since the economic crisis of 2009, over 9 million jobs have been created in America. Officially, the recession is over but American workers have come out of the crisis even more vulnerable and poorer than ever. About 46.7 million Americans live in poverty with 15% of the U.S. population living below the poverty line. But they aren't unemployed -- most of them have at least one job. They're America's 'working poor' -- the people behind America's economic recovery.. Germania has two minimum wage jobs working 18 hours a day. Three quarters of her salary goes to paying for the motel room she shares with her two children and mother-in-law. Even with two jobs, Germania struggles to provide food and support for her family. In the past four months, they've stayed in five motels moving every few weeks to increasingly cheaper rooms as their money runs out.. Joe and Chelsie live with their two young daughters in a tent in a church carpark. Their bathroom is a porta-potty they share with 50 other people. Around 500 families in Seattle live in these temporary camps. Chelsie works full-time but she can no longer afford to live in the city she works in.. Trade Union leader, Scott Slawson, has worked for General Electric for 13 years. But a few days ago, he was told his job would be relocated to a state with 50% lower salaries. He doesn't know if he will be able to find another job
