A searing portrait of American poverty

Bill Gates | 2019-03-27 | including 1 item |
In Atlanta earlier this year, Melinda and I met a young woman I’ll call Sharon. (That’s not her real name.) Sharon works 12 hours a day, seven days a week. She is a single mom with two sons, including a newborn. While Sharon was in the hospital after the birth of her new son, she missed a single rent payment on her apartment. She came home to discover that she was being evicted. https://www.gatesnotes.com/Books/Evicted
