South Florida’s Working Poor: The Struggle for Basic Needs

Nov 25, 2014

11/25/14 - Today’s Topical Currents examines studies of South Florida’s “working poor.”  Having a job doesn’t preclude a lack of sustenance. Only 1% of those who get food assistance are unemployed.  Seniors often face a choice of paying utilities and rent . . . or going hungry. We’ll learn more about the efforts with guests: United Way of Miami-Dade Sr. Dir. of Public Relations, Yanet Obarrio Sanchez, and Paco Vélez, President and CEO of Feeding South Florida. Topical Currents Tuesday at 1pm.
