US Poverty Rate Growing

Between 2000 and 2010, a record 15% of Americans lived below the poverty line-- $22,314 for a family of four. But what may be even more concerning is how fast it reached an all-time nationwide high of 46.2 million people.

The poor old guy at the beginning (became too sick to work, ended up homeless) had his storage unit auctioned off. Gives a different perspective to shows like Storage Wars, making not just Dave Hester look like an asshole, but the rest of the "Wow Factor" bunch, too!
