Gap

The Gap Between the Rich and Poor

Although our overall poverty rate is low, 25% of our adult population had incomes of $14,100 or less in 2010. The gap between rich and poor has been growing for some time. Research has shown that the wider the gap, the more stress there is for those who have been left behind. Increased stress leads to poorer health, among other negative factors.
