This chart from NPR illustrates graphically how expensive poverty truly is. It’s expensive to be poor, proportionally speaking. Things cost pretty much the same as far as food, housing, etc go- but proportionally more of it is spent when your income is below a certain level. And when your income is below a certain level, you lose access to things that might help you in the long term- like retirement, health care, and REAL food. And you become prey for people and businesses who believe that poor= uneducated, ignorant, and desperate.
